What are you reading?

Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

The Ravens by by Christopher Robbins*
Story of FAC's in Laos- unreal story- you can not make up a tale as good as this- no way..
Most highly recommended to military history buffs- and those who want to know what people who are doing the job in the military- think about REMF'S.
You could make 20 good movies out of this book...

One I haven't read for awhile. BARD by Keith Taylor. The first one is the only good one, but it's real good.

S- reccomends it for celtophiles

I just finished Black Flies, a novel about an ambulance driver in NYC, and am now reading the Female Brain at the urging of my wife.

Last book I read was House of Leaves, a little interesting, to say the least.

I just read H.G. Wells' "Time Machine" and it feels like the perfect allegory for life in Guangzhou, China. For example, in the book there's a scene where an Eloi named Weena is bathing in a river with other Eloi, she gets pulled into the river by a mild current, and none of the others show any concern at all for helping her.

Now I'm in the middle of Wells' "The Invisible Man."

Wells' "The Invisible Man."


I'm currently rereading Alan Moores League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Bad things happen to that invisible man.
