Default What are you reading?

What are you reading at this moment? What genres do you enjoy reading? Who are some of your favorite authors? What magazines and newsletters do you subscribe to? I'll start off.

I'm currently reading "Pledged - The Secret Life of Sororities" by Alexandra Robbins. This is non-fiction, but reads like a novel. Quite an eye opener, makes me very glad I was never in a sorority.

I like reading just about anything, fiction, non-fiction, history, etc. My favorite genre is murder mysteries. Some of my favorite authors are Max Collins, Patricia Cornwell, Clive Cussler, Vince Flynn, James Patterson, and just about anyone who writes Star Trek novels.

I only subscribe to one magazine - Navy Times. Sort of like the National Enquirer for Navy stuff, but fun to read.

Post your favorite books and authors.

Got done reading Inside Delta Force by Eric, L, Haney.

Some good insight into the Iranian contra operations by none other than operators themselves.

I just finished Women by Charles Bukowski.

It's a quick read. I really enjoyed it.

Just finished up Protect & Defend by Vince Flynn. Good author. I also enjoy reading David Baldacci, Dick Francis and Terry Pratchett's disc world novels.

Getting ready to start Walking in Circles before Lying Down by Merrill Markoe. After that, it's back to the library.

The Code Book was good.
Crypto Corner

You will probably like Wireless Security: Models, Threats and Solutions by Randall K. Nichols and Panos C. Lekkas, it touches on written ciphers then goes into analog scrambling and then digital encryption for just about any communications device, even wi-fi.

I actually read news online a lot. I don't seem to read too many books these days. Last week I picked up my copy of Atlas Shrugged and read a bit of it. It seemed appropriate with all that's going on.

I recently finished Arctic Drift by Clive Cussler, looking forward to his scheduled releases of Corsair, Medusa, Spartan Gold and Wrecker, all in '09. I'm currently reading Star Trek: A Singular Destiny.

To be technical, I'm reading this thread. But not to be technical, I'm reading "The Anatomy of a Traffic Stop" (forgot the author)

"A Singular Destiny" was a pretty good book. I bought "Artic Drift", but haven't read it yet. I just bought "Corsair" and that one sounds really good. I'll probably read that one next. I like the Dirk Pitt series and Juan Cabrillo series, but can't seem to get into the Kurt Austin series. So many different series to keep track of, LOL.

Finished reading Hunter S Thompson's The Great Shark Hunt Volume 1 and have started on Lieh-Tzu- A Taoist Guide to Practical Living. Pretty incongruous.
