Posted on 09/29/2008 7:19:37 AM PDT by MplsSteve
It's time again for my quarterly "What Are You Reading Now?" thread!
It can be anything...a NY Times bestseller, a technical journal, a trashy pulp novel...in short, anything!
DO NOT answer by saying "I'm Reading This Thread". It stopped being funny a long time ago.
Here's what I'm reading. I'm just about finished with "Blockaders, Refugees & Contrabands: Civil War on Florida's Gulf Coast 1861-1865."
It's a very interesting book about how the US Navy was able to turn a substantial portion of Florida's Gulf Coast population against the Confederacy, creating a civil war within that part of Florida.
So tell me...what are YOU reading now?
Just finished 'The Sicilian' by Mario Puzo
“Ike: An American Hero” by Michael Korda.
NLP and casinos? Want to invest in your company!!!
Faith of My Fathers-John McCain
Why are you embarrassed? If things get as bad as some expect, then you at least will be able to put food on your family's table!
Well, Surrender is Not an Option, Bible, Hail Holy Queen, God’s Politics (eegad, how I disagree with this guy on so many points) and Infiltration. Got a Kindle, and switch around depending on how many minutes I get to myself! Some are more difficult reads, of course. All are fascinating!
Not as exciting as it sounds. Working on a book on applying advanced marketing techniques to eLearning development.
Will be starting The Obama Nation - Jerome R. Corsi
Bible, Unlocking Gods Secrets (Bob Morley), America Alone(Steyn)

Just finished David Brinkley’s “A Memoir,” published in 1995. Someone sent me this book more than ten years ago and I stuck it in my book shelf. About a month ago, I came across it and starting reading. Some good stuff.
“An American Life” Ronald Reagan’s autobiography. Also rereading “The Return Of The King” by Tolkien.

‘Treason’s Harbour’ by Patrick O’Brien. It’s superb.

Just finished “1776” by David McCullough, now I’m back to the Bible (Revised Standard Version - Catholic Edition (RSV-CE)).
“The Reagan Diaries” by Ronald Reagan
“Jack of Shadows” by Roger Zelazny
“The Pacific War: 1941-1945” I’m still trying to figure out how the Japanese managed to blow the huge advantage they owned in 1942.
