I am a huge fan of reading and am always looking for a new book. I love anything that is based on real life and especially military topics. I am also a huge fan of biographies about influential people of the past. Looking for a few suggestions from my friends here. What are you guys reading?

Thanks
Joshua

Feel free to include any and all fictitious books as well. I'm always looking for a good read and I like many different types; fiction, non-fiction, bio, I like them all. smile

Josh, I really like the Frankenstein series by Dean Koontz, as well as The Great Gastpy by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren.

Meat Eater: Adventures from the Life of an American Hunter by Steven Rinella. Fun to read. I love his TV show too.

I love me some Dr. Seuss.

I kid.

It is however refreshing to occasionnally read/ re-read early documents that shape our Nation. There is more to the Constitution than just the preamble and the amendments.

I love western books. But my all time favorites are Hell West and Crooked by Tom Cole and A Fortunate Life by A.B. Facey, both Australian books.

Ian, I just got done reading a book by an Aussie. Culture of Complaint the author (can't remember his name) had me rolling on the ground with his outsider look on the USA. Sadly it was all true.

Josh, if you ever change your tastes in book type I'd say going after a massive series is good, for example Star Wars or Warhammer/Warhammer 40K. There are already hundreds of books for both, and new ones are being written all the time.

Josh recommended Culture of Complaint: The Fraying of America to me. The author is Robert Hughes. I might have to borrow it once I'm done with Gone Girl by Jillian Flynn

Josh, I have a new one to read that was given to me for xmas. Soldier Dogs written by Maria Goodavage. I'm waiting for a good oportunity to get stuck into it.
I too like reading military books. My most recent was SAS by Ian McPhedran. About the Aussie elite special forces.

Oliver North writes some pretty interesting fictional books. He has a series, so make sure you start with the first one. It really ties in to what he was doing back in the 80's.
