"Patriots" by James Wesley Rawles. Very good read about survival of a societal collapse.
Also I read once a month "The Combative Perspective" by Gabe Suarez, just to keep the mind fresh.

I like this thread. Just finished Drawing The Line by Edwin Danson. As the book jacket says "How Mason and Dixon Surveyed the Most Famous Border in America". Before that read the short book The Time Machine. It was free on my new IPad and I just wanted to try reading on the pad. I'm always looking for new material. I'm going to try some of the ones mentioned in this thread. Some of the fiction writers I like are Nelson DeMille, Daniel Silva, John Sanford, John Lescroart and now I'm reading my first Tom Clancy book in several years Against All Enemies. Enjoy seeing what others like.

Thanks for sharing

I just finished reading Shadow of the Flags, the first book in the Black Knights of the Hudson series. It is the saga of a family of West Pointers from the Civil War through World War I. One of the best books I've read in years.

the last "new" book i read was "Guns Of August", about the causes of and the events of the first thirty days of WW1. i re-read "Last Stand!" every few months or so, and the only other recent book was "Ship of Ghosts"; the story of the USS Houston and her crew in WW2. so, you can see i'm a big history buff..... not much on literary fiction.

The last "new book" I read was "Steve Jobs" by Walter Issacson. The last "old" book was "Airframe" by Michael Crichton. I bought that book for $2 at Goodwill. I'm looking at a way of making a bookshelf so I can have a library as we travel.

Dw, and oldest daughter are reading the hunger games, so I am too.
Fast reads as I'm used to reading military history.
I recommend getting a nook reader and downloading .epub free domain books. There's thousands of classics out there and you don't need a bookcase.

Last book I finished: Chromosome 6 by Robin Cook

BARNES & NOBLE | Chromosom 6 (Chromosome 6) by Robin Cook, Goldmann, Wilhelm Verlag GmbH | Paperback

Though mine was a free-E-dition.

Currently reading another free E-book. Caffine, can't give you the author's name.

There is a scene in the Robin Cook book where a bad dude has some good folk "in custody" He hauls off and hits one as hard as he can in the abdomen. His victim does not even move a muscle (Reacts to the punch as though he were a statue)

All the bad dude did was hurt his wrist.. I won't tell you how it ends, only that that is a very very very very very minor part of one tiny scene.
Home is where I park it!
