I was at Borders a few nights ago and I picked up 'Warhammer 40,000: The Killing Ground', 'The Art of Clint Langley: Dark Visions from the grim Worlds of Warhammer', 'The Army of Flanders and the Spanish Road: 1567-1659' by Geoffrey Parker, 'Forgotten Wars: The End of Britain's Asian Empire' by Christopher Bayly and Tim Harper and 'The grand Strategy of Philip II' by Geoffrey Parker.

I finished 'The Lover' by Marguerite Duras a few days back. I have just started on 'Battles of the Thirty Years War: From White Mountain to Nordlingen 1618-1635'. I am also in the midst of a few other books including 'God is not great: How religion poisons the world' by Christopher Hitchens.

What you are guys reading?

Read: "The War of Wars: The Epic Struggle Between Britain and France 1789-1815" by Robert Harvey. Outstanding. Highly Recommended. Note: 926 readable pages but worth it. Rule Britannia.
I am reading The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks.

It may well be the most important book I have ever read. It could save your life.
Good book but prefer World War Z....
The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown.....not a complete waste of time, but close. Liked Di Vinci Code and Angels & Demons better. But essentially, all 3 are the same book.
My mom's reading that one now. I might read it a little down the road - Dan Brown can be good escapist fun for a couple of days.

On the "to read" list are a big pile of Ospreys, Chandler's The Campaigns of Napoleon, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and some guy with an apparent drug problem.
Before Stalingrad Glantz,
Read "Pebble in the Sky" by Isaac Asimov. SciFi. My favorite book to read every few years. Always a great read.
"The Empire of Manuel I Komnenos 1143-1180. By Paul Magdalino. Good but only for those interested in Byzantine History and Culture.
'The Greatest Show on Earth' by Richard Dawkins.
Read: "The Lost Kingdom of Burgundy" by Christopher Cope. Very Good. A history of the Burgundian(today) area of France attempt to become a independent State. Too bad they failed. Author's opinion and I agree.

"God's Battalions: The Case for the Crusades" by Rodney Stark. Excellent and recommended. A factual account of the (Counter)Crusades against Islam and why they Really Happened.
I have just finished reading 'Forgotten Voices', which is a collection of different entries form soldiers letters and diaries from the First World War, and was done in chronological order. Absolutely fantastic book. Some funny bits, some sad bits, quite a few surprising and eye opening bits.
"No Triumphant Procession"
