Just about to start on this. ebook version, sadly!
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.
Rereading The Portable Dorothy Parker.
Just about finished with this;
Got 3 on the go right now...

One of my favourite essayists, so ... soon ...

Re-reading this one.

Boatload of Conan authors these days.
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.
I've got to go back and reread those Conan books.
