Rainbow Six by Tom Clancy. First time through it, always had it on my "to read" list, but just now getting to it. I love $0.25 garage sale books! :D

I'm reading a physiology textbook at night as well as Charles Darwin's "On the Origin of Species". The 19th century British prose is pretty dense and filled with commas, though, so I find it a difficult read (at least portions of it).

I just finished "The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo" first in trilogy by Stieg Larsson. Not just a girl book. Now reading "The Capitol Gang" by Brian Haig.

I am currently reading; To Dare and To Conquer by Derek Leebaert, on my kindle.

Very interesting reading.

How do you like this one so far? I have it on my bookshelf, but haven't read it.

About to start "Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?" By Beverly Daniel Tatum, Ph.D.

It's for a social psychology class (which I'm pretty "Meh." about), but the book seems interesting upon my initial skimming session. It's an explanation of the development of racial identity from a psychological perspective--to paraphrase the cover.

KJV of the Bible and under that a G21 filled to capacity.
In the first drawer, 45 acp 1911
2nd Drawer, 9mm in 1911
Last Drawer pair of 1911's, both 45 acp and both loaded to the max.
Not a fanatic but I like the acp and if I wake up it does not matter which drawer I open or grab the one on top.

The Price of Liberty - by T. W. Elliott

I find the book to be a combination of Tom Clancy and Vince Flynn in style. Very detailed, but still an easy read for the action and mayhem it pursues. I won't spoil the story, but I will say that Mr. Elliott does bring to light a scary possibility as far as commercial aviation goes in this modern day post 9/11 world. Especially on the back of the more recent events that have occurred and ended in tragedy.

Recently Finished the latest Robert Crais book, Watchman. It is a Joe Pike/Elvis Cole book. Crais has been around for a while and I read a few of his earlier Joe Pike/Elvis Cole books and they were good but this latest one just blows me away. Joe Pike is a tough SOB and can be mean when the situation calls for it. He is now at the level the Lee Child's recurring hero Jack reacher was at action wise until his last 4 or 5 outings. Child now seems to be working more on intricate plots than action but they are still good books and they read very fast.

Now I'm about 250 pages into State of Fear by Michael Crichton. Very intricate plot and complex subject matter but as all of his books this one is a page turner.

Just FYI Lee Child has a new Reacher book the title of which escapes me at the moment. I am looking forward to checkin' it out. I'm in high hopes that our hero will be kicking a little more bee-hind and taking a few more names and spending a little less time on detailing the plot.....we shall see what we shall see.

I really enjoyed "State of Fear"

Right now I'm on the "The Wastelands" by Stephen King. I decided to read The Dark Tower series again. This may be my third time through. Maybe the 2nd.
