We have a "What are you grilling?" thread, so why not a "What are you reading?" thread?

My wife came back from the library with this book and said "A C-130 and a defender on the cover- how could you not like it?!?"

Good read- they refer to the wagons as "pinkies" for a throwback to the pink panthers... All of the SF defenders we carried were painted desert sand.

Cheers
Jay

I usually only read non-fiction, mostly history or military related subjects. Huge reader of WWII topics. These are the current two I'm reading for work.

"Travels with Charley:in search of America". Been thinking of finally doing the cross country drive I've always wanted and picked this up again for the motivation. One of Steinbeck's best.

I just finished "Inferno" by Max Hastings.

Now I'm reading Dan Brown's "The Plantagenets", and planning my next trip to Medieval Britain; "The Right Stuff" by Tom Wolfe; "Lost in Shangri-La" by Mitchell Zuckoff.

I really liked "Wool" and its followups.

And since I'm NOT smart, I'm reading "Relativity: the Special and General Theory" by Einstein. (No, it is not his published theory in its original form, he wrote this specifically for people who don't like the maths.)
