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: "How Churchill Saved Civilization" by John Harte. This book's main purpose is to provide an account of Churchill's policies before and during WWII and their consequences for readers who don't want to read a multi-volume history of the war. The author attempts to tell the story how the world we know it was almost ended in the 1940's. But there is a problem, the author is very short on the historical facts of WWII's play-by-play. The battles and campaigns are all jumbled up and out of chronological order. The insight into Churchill and how he accomplished what he did is very good and I recommend the book only on this. 

"Churchill & Orwell: The Fight For Freedom" by Thomas E. Ricks. Two different men, ideologically, and from different social backgrounds but both are Giants on what they stood for and accomplished against the odds. They stood for Freedom of the individual over all else. Churchill the aristocrat and politician and George Orwell the writer and leftist fighter came to the same conclusion, totalitarianism whether from the right or the left is the same: the end of Liberty. Outstanding and Highly Recommended.
