I'm all over the place on stuff I read.
I've always liked History so I have been though a few books about WWII.

I have to read something at night or I'll never fall asleep.
Currently I'm reading.
The Fifth Assassin by Brad Meltzer

Stephen Hunter is probably my favorite author.
Bob Lee Swagger is a BadAss

I just finished Level Zero Hero's. It's a story of a MARSOC unit in Afghanistan.

My best friend was killed there with these guys. It was a very good read. Just to get a account of what those guys do and have done.
Normally they don't talk to much about the things they do over there.

Right now I am reading Lions of Kandahar.

I really seem to like alternative history fiction and Sci-Fi books. I guess I need to have something to take my mind off how F'd up the real world is and just like to just read a good story.

The funny thing is a lot of stuff I read is written for Teens in the Dystopian and Post-Apocalyptic Fiction genre.

My wife reads two or three books at time, I don't know how she does that.
I can't read that fast, there are some nights I go to bed with a book and have to reread 4-5 pages to figure out where I fell asleep the night before.

I mostly read books that come out from guys who were in Iraq and Afghanastan.

Generation Kill was a great one. That was a book from 1st Recon and the initial invasion in Iraq. That was my buddies first unit he was in.
I knew a lot of the guys from that book and still keep in contact with a few of them.

Juniors mom is working on a book on his life. There has been some troubles getting ahold of his records from the DOD.
Right now she is making connections with a bunch of the guys he served with to get stories.

Just finished "The Penguin History of the USA", damn good, well informed historical read. Now taking a break with some fiction:

51HjBJ3mKTL._SX321_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg


About identical twin sisters, at the age of 6, one tragically dies in a fall from a balcony. At first, everyone thinks they know which one is the survivor, but as the story unravels, they all become less sure....even the survivor....spooking, hard to put down.

I don't know maybe I'm just a little off, but I like to read anything.
How-to, Owners manuals about stuff I don't even have.
Me too, to a point. I love crime thrillers (especially Scandivanian, e.g. Nesbo, Larsson), but I read lots of history, e.g. just read this one:

and I like to read bio- (and autobio-)graphies of people I reckon I'd find interesting! e.g. Elizabeth I of England, Stalin, and those bios of rock stars; indeed being an ageing punk rocker, I loved this one

516x86j7bpL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg


which I read a month or so ago.

Also like to (try to) read pop-science and pop-maths from time to time, when I feel really keen (or masochistic!).

Just finished reading "Ice Twins", really liked it, very sad portrayal of the desperation, deceit, mental breakdown and love within the central family. I'm now on this one:

I've read Gillian's others ("Sharp objects", and "Dark places") and enjoy her plots and her depiction of Mid-western small town life.
