Default What are you reading?!

I am a big fan of John Sandford -- he writes the "Prey" series that features Lucas Davenport. I've read all of that series so I started another of his series -- this one featuring Virgil Flowers. This book is called "Dark of the Moon". Nothing heavy -- just nice mindless entertainment.

I recently read "World War Z" (awesome Zombie book), The Book Thief (awesome WWII era book), and 1Q84 (Japanese book... weird... cant explain... but, IMO sucked....)

What are you reading?!

Gasp, I saw you are already reading "American Sniper"....great book.

"Lone Survivor" written by Marcus Luttrel. He is the only survivor of Operation Red Wings, Afghanistan 2005. A 4 member SEAL team was attacked by an estimated 200 Taliban in the Hindu Kush mountains. (there were at least 80 Taliban KIA)

"SEAL of HONOR", I don't remember the author. The story of Lt. Michael P. Murphy USN. Lt. Murphy was awarded the Cong. Medal of Honor for his actions during Operation Red Wings in 2005. This book actually brought tears to my eyes.

"With the Old Bread", by E.B. Sledge. Sledge was a Marine Corp infantryman who made beach landings at Peleiu Lu (Sp?) and Okinawa in the latter part of WWII.

Is Lt Murphy the one that had a black lab that layed by his casket during his funeral?

Do you remember the Seal team members that went down in the helicopter crash last August? One of them, Nick Spehar, was from the small town I work in. I had the honor of leading the procession escorting his body from the county line to the funeral home. The roads were lined with people. They had signs, flags, etc. Honestly, I get goose bumps writing about it now. It was incredible.

Always sitting on my side table. It's a book that I can just pick up and enjoy any time.
