What book's on your nightstand now?

Ok, so I haven't seen anyone else start this thread, so I will. What book is currently on your nightstand, or on the counter beside the porcelain throne? ;f

My current reading is Massacre at Oradour. Just getting started on it, but it looks to be good.

Brave Men by Ernie Pyle. Copyright date is 1943/1944. I have really enjoyed the books about World war II that were written by Ernie Pyle.

Awaken the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins


P.S. - first time reading any of his material. Has anyone read his books or listened to his CD's? Any positive results or an improved mindset because of it?

Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets. Review link attached. This is the book that the TV show Homicde came from. As a bonus, many of the characters and names that show up on "The Wire" on HBO are found here. It's a re-read for me, but always holds my attention.
