What book are you reading??

So what book or books are you currently reading??

I'm reading "Shooter" an autobiography of a marine sniper, Gunnery Sgt. Jack Coughlin. I just finished "Inside Delta Force" By Eric Hanney (the book that the show The Unit is LOOSELY based on). I highly recomend both for people who like military reading.

I haven't read a book in several weeks but if you dig reading about the Mafia check out the book called Five Families: The Rise, Decline, and Resurgence of America's Most Powerful Mafia Empires.

There was a lot of controversy over this book. Some Marines were saying a lot of this stuff he wrote didn't happen or happen the way he wrote it. It was in the news for a little while and the talk radio show guys (like Rush) had a field day with it.

I just ordered this book:

About the Navy Seals in aAfghanistan who were ambushed.
and:

Always good to know the thoughts of our enemies.

Shooter. I've looked at it on the shelf and seems like a good one. I just remember it was in the news people saying he made a lot of it up. I never saw how it all turned out.

Hmm that's interesting. I haven't heard anything. Ohh well. I'm two chapters from the end. It's a good book. I haven't really read anything in it that would really make a big differance if it was made up.

You've sparked my interest with "Lone Survivor" I may get it next if I don't read Michael Durants "In The Company of Heros".

Read both within the last few years.


As much as I hate to admit this, I'm reading the last of the harry potter books (read them all in the last two months). Bought them for my kids, picked up the first one one night while bored, and read them all. Guess I'm a nerd or a teenage girl - you pick.

Just finished reading "I hope they serve beer in hell" by Tucker Max

If your young and into the whole college bar scene, definitely read this book I was laughing hysterically the whole way through. Its true stories that happened to him and his friend in his college days while studying law.

I guess it didn't have a section on how to NOT swallow a can tab.

Anything by Tom Brown Jr. is a fantastic read. He's a renowned survivorist And if you've seen the movie "The Hunted". Tommy Lee Jones' character was based off Tom Brown.
