Winter Reading

What's everyone reading? People still read don't they.

I just finished The Longest Day by Cornelius Ryan. The black and white movie by the same is great but so is the book, if you like history and WWII stuff this is a very good non-fiction book, not your typical dry here's the facts non-fiction but a book that gets into the people and what is happening with the D Day invasion.

just finished The Reckoning by John Grisham. I've read everything he's written and really enjoyed it.

For a cold, dreary, rainy winter day...hard to beat Robinson Crusoe ( complete unabridged version) for a pleasurable and adventuresome escapism of the mind...

Jeff Shaara's -- Fatal Lightning about Sherman's march across Georgia, just in the early parts of it but looks to be pretty good if you like Civil War stuff.
