Tuttle and Fro - those books look good. I enjoy historical non-fiction and fiction, especially naval history, though I love war history as well.

Like action?  Well check out any of the "Jack Reacher" series by Lee Child.
Jack is an ex-MP that ends up in the middle of something bad and has to:
fight, kill, improvise his way out.

I like the mixture books, where there is some accurate history and some made up stuff.  Just recently started reading a book called Prince of Thieves by Chuck Hogan, about bank robbers in New England.  Apparently in reality, ther are more bank robbers born in one section of New England than any other part of the US.

Favorite book of the last few years, I read a book on Doc Holliday, and of course, The Da Vinci Code.  Those have to be two of my most recent favorites.

I'm now working on "Just Americans" by Robert Asahina



Brief description:
Within months after Pearl Harbor, 110,000 Japanese Americans were forcibly “evacuated” from the West Coast, losing their jobs, their property, and their homes. In less than a year, they were “relocated” and incarcerated in desolate camps throughout the West, Southwest, and South. Yet, incredibly, thousands of young men from the camps joined the Army, to defend the country that had denied them their rights. This is the dramatic story of the segregated Japanese American 100th Battalion/442d Regimental Combat Team — and what they did to affirm their full citizenship. As Gen. Jacob L. Devers put it, in World War II the soldiers of the 100th/442d had “more than earned the right to be called just Americans, not Japanese Americans.”

During the fall of 1944, the combat team made headlines when it rescued the “lost battalion” of the 36th “Texas” Division. At the same time, with the 1944 elections looming, the Roosevelt Administration was debating whether to close the camps. And while the soldiers of the 100th/442d were sacrificing their lives in Europe, the Supreme Court was deciding the infamous Korematsu and Endo cases, which challenged the notion that “military necessity” justified the “relocation.”

Bah. I suck...

I'm reading  "C# Developer's Headstart"  by Mark Michaelis ... yall don't rush out and get it all at once now. :)
Most of the books in my collection (several hundred) are computer / programming related...  I've only read a hand full of them front to back, most are reference.  The last "real" book I attempted to read was The Davinci Code.

I just picked up a copy of "I am Legend" by Richard Matheson this afternoon, I'm eager to read up prior to the movie in December.
