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?

I'm finally getting down to reading Angus Konstam's 'Sovereigns of the Sea: The Quest to Build the Perfect Renaissance Battleship' about two years after I bought the volume. Heh.
I'm reading 'Empires of the Sea' by Roger Crowley. I really should read the books I buy sooner and not wait till years later.
I just finished Pat Frank's 'Alas Babylon'. Interesting novel with mention of the old Grumman F-11F Tigers, B-47s, B-58s and more. A worthwhile read.
Read "The Last Duel" by Eric Jager. Subtitled: A True Story of Crime, Scandal, and Trial by Combat in Medieval France. Could be a Hollywood movie??? Good.

"The Scottish War of Independence" by Evan Macleod Barron. A"Critical Study" to support the author's main point that it was Celtic Scotland and not Anglo-Norman Scotland that won this war. Somewhat dry but good.
Read: "1314 Bannockburn" by Aryeh Nusbacher. Outstanding. Highly recommended.

"William Wallace: The King's Enemy" by D.J. gray. Good.
I have just finished 'Gunpowder and Galleys' by John Francis Guilmartin Jr. I am now finishing 'Admirals' by Andrew Lambert.
I am reading History Of The Second World War by B.H. Liddell Hart.
A Patriots History of the United States and the good ole King James !!
Andrew Jackson: His Life and Times, by H.W. Brands
Read: "The Kings and Queens of Scotland" by Richard Oram. Very Good Overview of the subject. Recommend.

"The Wars of the Bruces:Scotland, England, and Ireland 1306-1328" by Colm McNamee Very Good military, social, and economic survey of this period. Recommend.
I'm reading 'The Art of Warfare in the Renaissance' by Stephen Turnbull. Heh.
Correction: 'The Art of Renaissance Warfare'.
