Dang sm, I thought I read a lot....but I do believe you've got me beat.

Recent books in the last month or so:

Guns of the South - Turtledove
A WW2 history....forget author
Dirty White Boys, Point of Impact, and Black Light - Hunter
First Seal - Boehm (wouldn't recommend this one though)

Also get American History magazine so that absorbs lots of time.....

I was sooo happy when this past semester ended to read something other than text and technical. I had some time to kill "waiting" in various situations. I kinda went bonkers. :p

I want to re-read Unintended Consequences again. My copy walked off. I checked with 3 bookstores, None in stock.

I will slow down, now that I have these read and some reading for me out of my system...

Matthew Bracken...don't you wait until fall sem starts to release that new book of yours...:D

I've got a three month old kid, and work really long hours, so I don't get much reading done. Heavy reading on the history of RKBA (Halbrook) and the restoration of the Constitution (Barnett) just doesn't work.

Current reading: Peace Kills by P.J. O'Rourke

A must read...."How to Work for an Idiot...Survive & Thrive without killing your Boss" (by John Hoover)

Tried to read The Enemy Within, by Michael Savage, who I usually enjoy listening to. It was foaming-at-the-mouth blather and venom.

Tried to read Treason, by Ann Coulter. Foaming-at-the-mouth blather and venom.

Read Who's Looking Out For You, by Bill O'Reilly. Was OK.

I re-read Uhuru last winter. It stood up pretty well after all these years. Some of the stuff going on in Africa is the same, just a few different players.

Current book is: United States Submachine Guns: From the American 180 to the ZX-7 by Frank Iannamico.

Lots of info on guns I'd never heard of before and some new info on guns I was a bit familiar with.
