    Exclamation Reading Material Section

    Just a place to share what you have read. Sturmvogel's idea, I just turned it on.

    In those moments where you're not quite sure if the undead are really dead, dead, don't get all stingy with your bullets.

    My oldest son turned me on to the Wheel of Time books by Robert Jordan. Being 60 years old I didn't think I would get into them. Well I'm half way through the second book and it gets harder to put them down.

    Currently re-reading the Eisenhorn Trilogy from Dan Abnett because I'm a 40k geek as well.

    That trilogy rocks, trying to figure out why stuff isn't popping into the "new posts" list.

    You know the Halo series books are great. I prefer reading them books over playing the games.

    Any book from the Vietnam war is a great read- Dak To, six silent men series is great, phantom warriors, the eyes of the eagles, eyes behind the lines, LRRPs just to name a few I have read multiple times.

    Patriots is a good one. One second after is a good one.

    I really like the works of Glenn Cook. Primarily the Black Company series.
    I also read a lot of Wilbur Smith, George R.R. Martin, Orson Scott Card, Fred Saberhagen, Marrion Zimmer Bradley, the list can go on forever.

    Of course I absolutely love the Calvin and Hobbes compilations whenever I need cheering up....

    Some people are like a slinky...

    Not really good for anything, but fun to push down the stairs.

    Just finished The Battleship Era (1972) By Peter Padfield. This covered the time frame between 1859's first sea going steam powered all big gun Ironclad La Glorie and trans-Atlantic crossing by twin turret USN monitors in 1870.
    To the sinking of the Yamato class battleships in 1945. The section from the late 1870's to 1914 were fascinating
    These things were the ultimate weapons of their day.. Very high tech, they had electric lights internal telephones, mechanical fire control computers.

    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union
