The Silmarrillion. Great book, although for a fantasy novel, it kind of reads like a history book.

The Secret Team. It's about how the CIA actually runs the government and cajoles others into doing it's bidding.

Re: What Are You Reading?

I've been pretty good about getting through my summer reading list this year. I just finished "The Last Season" by Eric Blehm and "The Creation" by E.O. Wilson. Both great books--Blehm's book about Randy Mortgenson, a veteran Sierra Mountain ranger who disappeared in 1996, was both an exceptional potrayal of a unique personality and, given the mystery surrounding his disappearance, a page-turner to boot. I'm working through "Bottled and Sold" right now on the bottled water industry. Good read--it's basically a primer (weighing in at less than 200 pages) that doesn't read like a textbook.

Currently reading "Blind Man's Bluff, The true untold story of American Submarine Espionage" by Sherry Sontag and Christopher Drew. I'm 2/3d's through and its pretty interesting and cool to read about what was happening, especially during the time I grew up.

My dad was a sonar tech on subs and he had told me about a lot of these things that he had done. I'm reading it now thinking my dad told me all about these under sea games with the Russians years ago. lol.

I thought so too. Jay Doybns AKA "Bird" was interviewed on Coast to Coast a few months back.

This is great to hear. I picked up several books a couple of months ago and this was one of them I just haven't gotten around to reading it yet.

I'm usually more of a Science Fiction/ Fantasy book reader. I sometimes have 2 or 3 books I will read at the same time like I started "The Ghost King" by R.A. Salvatore in order to finish out the series, but I started the submarine book. I have "No Angle" to read and a second part to a zombie series I read The morningstar strain "Thunder and Ashes" by Z.A. Recht.

I've read a couple of other books of undercover agents who infiltrated the biker gangs and I love reading them.

Re: What Are You Reading?

"Under and Alone, The true story of an undercover agent who infiltrated America's most violent outlaw motorcycle gang" by William Queen is awsome also.

Perhaps this was the only other. I thought there was another but I may be wrong. This one was awsome though.

Just started "The Girl With Dragon Tatoo". One of a three part series written by Stieg Larsson who is now deceased.

I'll give a recap when I'm done.

Read and saw the movie both are excellent. Movie is probably one of the best adaptions I have ever seen it was near flawless.

That's what I hear. I nearly saw it before I picked up the book. I hear "The Girl That Played With Fire" is now out in theaters.

If I dear say depending on your level of reading or speed of reading if you will; watch the movie it will save you the time of reading the book and you will have lost nothing in the story.

I can't think off the top of my head any other movie/book combo that I have ever said that for.

Oh and the movie is sub-title so you are kind of reading it! Unless of course you speak Swedish fluently.

Re: What Are You Reading?

Currently reading "Nathan Bedford Forrest - A Biography." Great book about a troubled overachieving warrior. He rose from Private to 4 star general, the highest ascention in all of American History. And was a tactical cavalry genius.

Very interesting read for you history (civil war and military) buffs.
