Ohhh...that sounds right up my alley.

One I really enjoyed was Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong. That gave some very fascinating, politically incorrect history of various accounts of US history, from Columbus up into Iraq and Afghanistan.

I'm reading Journal of the Dead by Ason Kersten. A true crime book, it's about two friends lost in Rattlesnake Canyon in New Mexico. One of the guys ends up dead. It is a very good book. I recommend it.

Thumbs up One's honor is everything~

My father-in-law just gave me Vince Flynn's novel, Pursuit of Honor. I have only just started it, but know already that I am going to devour it and wish for more.

It presents a very plausible story of Washington, D.C. being devastated by terrorists bomb attacks. It is frightening look-over-your-shoulder reading time!!
