    Finally, I’ve had an opportunity to read for pleasure. In the last month - some re-reads…

    A Collection Of Essays - George Orwell
    For Whom The Bell Tolls – Hemingway
    UHURU - Robert Ruark
    The Old Man’s Boy Grows Older - Robert Ruark
    The General’s Daughter -Nelson DeMille
    Plum Island - DeMille
    The Charm School - DeMille
    Up Country – DeMille
    Enemies Foreign And Domestic –Matthew Bracken
    Hallock’s .45 Auto Handbook – Ken Hallock
    The S&W Revolver – A Shop Manual Jerry Kuhnhausen

    (Granted the last two are often picked up and used as references)

    In the midst of
    Montana Sky Nora Roberts

    (Don’t laugh guys…a great mystery and you will NOT know until the end…)

    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

    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.
