    A biography of John Boyd. It was recommended by a SWAT Commander I'm taking Emergency Training from. I'm a civilian now, but still take training when available.

    Boyd came up with the OODA Loop. Google it....kind of interesting ;o)

    Dark World by Zak Bagans. My wife and I are huge fans if ghost adventures and I saw this at the kindle store so I thought I would give it a read. I really like Zak's insight into the paranormal and his thoughts on everything. I'm only done the first few chapters but I like it so far.

    It's a Graphic Novel. I am a little less then half way though it and I have to say I am enjoying it vary much. I would recommend it if you are into that sort of thing.

    LOADS of comics and graphic novels. Catching up on a lot eg Marvel Civil War, Marvel Zombies, Thanos Imperative, Venom, Wolverine Weapon X, Old Man Logan and the 'new 52' Aquaman and Green Lantern. Also some Slaine, Judge Dress and Nemesis The Warlock. I was raised on 2000AD and Eagle comics!!

    On a more serious note, I'm reading 'why I am not a Muslim by Ibn Warraq. Real eye opening stuff. I have Rushdie's 'The Satanic Verses' waiting to be read.
    I also have a PDF copy of 'Tricks of the Mind' by Derren Brown on the go. I will buy this for certain.

    I read to my son every night and we just finished book 10 of The 39 Clues. If you have kids that are around 10 or 11 they'll love that series. They have also expanded the series with a new story line called "Cahills vs Vespers".

    Since we just finished the first storyline, we're going to take a break before we diving into the second. I was at the bookstore yesterday and happened across a book that sounds pretty exciting. It's about a couple of guys that stumble across information in a geocache about a bomb located somewhere. In the cache is a puzzle on how to prevent the bomb from going off. Since my son and I geocache a lot I'm hoping it's a good read.

    A good introduction to the excellent Christopher Hitchens.
    This stuff is a particular interest of mine. I've amassed a pretty decent collection of books on religion, atheism, critical thinking etc. PM me if you would like suggestions or to 'borrow' ebooks.

    Repost from my EDC thread, but it's so exciting I had to post here too!

    NERD ALERT!
    I got my Sullivan's Sluggers Graphic Novel. I don't know much about it. I have a friend who owns a Comic Book Store and he showed it too me. Mind blowing incredible. Comes with a thick cardboard sleeve.
