I'm big into history or cyberpunk. I just finished American Sniper a few months back. I am in the middle of Odyssey (HOMER). And I'll pick up Catch-22 after, then probably Slaughterhouse-Five.

Currently reading Three Engines, Half A Wing, and a Prayer. Pretty good book about B-17s over Europe. Though, I may be biased because the book features my great uncle...

Recently finished With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa by Eugene Sledge, a real visceral account of two of the bloodiest battles in the Pacific Theater of WW2. Served as heavy inspiration for the TV series The Pacific.

Also, if anyone here is interested in the Vietnam War I highly recommend both Dispatches and The Things They Carried. Two of my favorite books. I've read both of them several times.

Just finished The Case for Christ: A Journalist's Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus by Lee Strobel. Very good and interesting reading. Probably because I love history and archaeology lol.
Currently I'm reading Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story by Arnold Schwarzenegger. I consider his career the greatest ever. Unbelievable where he came from and what he has achieved.

Stephen King is one of my favorite authors of all time - for any of you that haven't I recommend you check out his magnum opus, The Stand.

I'm currently reading Babylon's Ashes by James S.A. Corey of the Expanse series. I can't recommend it enough. Also currently reading Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle.

I would also recommend any of Neil Gaiman's books.

Stephen King is also one of my favorite writers.. Although his political views bother me.
all the same I would recommend

11-22-63
Lises Story
The Regulators

Dark Tower Series is great. on book IV now


Other then that the only thing I read is probably Glenn Beck..

let me explain Glenn....

As a author his interpretation of our constitution and federal laws are spot on..
His book "Arguing With Idiots" is a must read for any young person wanting to fully
understand our written laws..

As a person he's useless.. A hypocrite to say the least..

Cheers

I've recently started reading Fireforce by Chris Cocks, a first hand account of his experiences in the Rhodesian Light Infantry during the mid-late 70s fighting against the Communist insurgency in the country. Pretty interesting stuff so far, lots of parallels to Vietnam. The Fireforce tactic they used was essentially getting a report of enemy activity and then scrambling out in helicopters and planes to assault by air (typical air assault by helo, combined with combat parachute drops.) An interesting take on COIN operations, reminds me of reading about the French and Foreign Legion guys who would para into Indochina to fight the Viet Minh.

Anyways, I'm only a few chapters in but I would recommend it, gives an interesting perspective on a war that, at least here in the States, you don't hear about very often at all.

For a dirty commie, I sure do read a lot of books about commies getting whacked...
