    Today I start "october sky" by homer hickman - its the book they based the movie off of.
    Since i know the story its sort of a bummer, but I am always interested in readign about people pulling themselves out of bad situations, improving their lives through hard work and dedication

    I recently started One Second After. I'm at the point where they're realizing they may have experienced
    an EMP attack.

    I'm still on 'Only in Death' from Dan Abnett's "The Lost" Gaunt's Ghosts Omnibus. I actually had tears in my eyes when one of the main characters died....never happened to me before!!!! A testament to the authors ability to create personalities we can empathise with.

    Next up will be Erich Von Daniken (Sp?) 'Chariots of the Gods' which my brother lent me. He's the one who gave me that insane David Icke book though, so I'm not all that excited!

    I read Chariots of the Gods when I was in high school. I enjoyed it, hmmm, I will have to read it again soon. Currently I am reading Stalking the Wild Pendulum by Itzhak Bentov. Last week I read the The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot.

    One of my all time favorite books is To Reign in Hell by Stephen Brust. Prior to that, my favorite was Illusions, Confessions of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach.

    "The Reapers Line" Life and death on the Mexican border----- Very good book about the Border Patrol.
    "War" by Sebastian Junger---- Great book about the war in Afganistan.
    "Tough Towns" True tales from the gritty streets of the old west.--- Very good read about outlaws in the old west.
    "Ten Deadly Texans"----just started it, but looks to be very good.

    I'm on the 7th and last book (until he writes another) of the Stephen King series "The Dark Tower". The whole series is over 4500 pages long, and the last book is over 1000 pages by itself. Overall the series has been pretty good, but there are times it has been exhausting. I have taken a few breaks and read other books in between the D.T. books.

    Just a few chapters in, but, so far, its been very eye opening. Lots of history that is new to me.
