    Coupla weeks ago read "No Angel" by Jay Dobyns.

    Now I'm reading "Why We Suck" by Dr. Denis Leary. A funny Liberals
    perspective on todays(or two years ago) pop culture.
    I like this wise cracking know it all. He's funny thou still politically too Liberal. For 4 $'s, the price was right.

    Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris.

    It's a collection of humorous essays on all kinds of life experiences, from describing his cheap parents to the trials of being an American in Paris. Sedaris is brilliant and I'm starting his When You Are Engulfed in Flames next.

    I just finished "The Mystic Art of Erasing all Signs of Death" by Charlie Huston. Excellent read. Of course, I havn't read anything by him I disliked. His "Joe Pitt Casebooks" series was good, and the "Shotgun Rule" is a favorite of mine.

    Kildar by John Ringo - seems to be escapist American soldier gets the girl(s), kills all the bad guys, and becomes a prince. Its pretty much popcorn reading.

    The Motion of the Ocean by Janna Cawrse Esaray - this was written by someone I knew in high school, mostly a combination of the adventure of sailing around the Pacific for your honeymoon, thoughts on relationship building, and personal development. Made me think about taking care of my own marriage relationship, good stuff.

    Warrior Mindset by Dr. Michael Aken - Much of the early chapters seem repetitive if you have read On Combat (Grossman) or others in the field. Hopefully it will improve as the books goes on.

    Time for Outrage: Indignez-vous! by St├ęphane Hessel

    Rather short but interesting book. I agree with some and in some cases it gave me a rather interesting perspective that I simply would not have being American

    Training at the Speed of Life by Kenneth Murray - just starting but so far I am very impressed about the detail of how to get training methods to best provide real life results.

    Day by Day Armageddon: Broken Hourglass. So far it isn't as good as the first two books, which is disappointing, the first two were very good examples of zombie fiction, mostly it is a change of the writing perspective.
