    Re-reading for nth time "Band of Brothers" by Stephen Ambrose.

    It's the true history of Easy Company, part of the 101st Airborne Division, who dropped into Normandy on D-day, dropped at Neigmargen as part of the Arham campaing, and held the line at Bastogne.

    Very inspiring stuff.

    I usually only read 1 book at a time but I've found that when one gets a bit tough to get through a section or chapter, its sort of rejuvinating to read something different for a few days and then go back to the first one.

    I'm on the final pages of "SS" by Guido Knopp. Good as always by this German historian.

    Just started this after my daughter and my mother both raved:

    It certainly kicks off without undue exposition and a novel premise. We'll see how it plays. Next up:

    This is no time for light reading.

    Re-reading this one.
    I have the Ace series (12 volumes) complete but their still in decent shape after all these years.
    Love the old REH stuff but the Carter/Decamp and Robert Jordon series measures up also....IMO.
    Boatload of Conan authors these days.

    Carry on....

    Starting "Slaughterhouse-Five" I've inadvertantly been reading a lot of books that have been made into films lately.

    I'm reading 'The Girl Who Played With Fire' - I read, and really enjoyed, 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' over the summer. Good stuff for a sunny day...

    Keith Richards "Life". More of a long mystery story than an autobiography. Lots of fun though I jump over the long substance experiences.

    Three books at once? You sure you're a geordie, j?* For me, I read one at a time, fiction and non-fiction consecutively. Fiction's turn now.

    Blehm's "The Only Thing Worth Dying For."

    It's about an SF unit that went into southern AFG in 2001.
