What! I thought the world was created on 7 days. Seriously, I suggest you try Why Geography Matters.

The Ecclesiastical History of the English People by Bede and the Guns of August by Barbara Tuchman
The Dave Robicheax series is what some people call "hard boiled detective", or "Noir". He's a homicide detective in New Iberia, LA. He's a recovering alcoholic who has a lot of demons he battles, and gets stuck in storylines that put him in some morally challenging places. His best friend, and de-facto "partner" is a private detective named Clete, who is a loose cannon, and a drunk, who is absolutely histerical. Despite all of his vices, he is actually somewhat of a moral compass for Robicheax. It's just a great series by an author with a great sense of humor. He mixes in humor with very serious ventures into the dark side of humanity, and kind of navigates through moral grey areas.
Another great author is Lee Child, who someone mentioned. There is a movie out with Tom Cruise, called "Jack Reacher". That is Child's character. I don't like Tom Cruise, and that is the last person I would have imagined playing the character. Seems like Eastwood 30 yrs ago would have been perfect for the role. I don't know how accurately the movie portrays the character, if at all, but I'm going to check it out.
Joe, I would definitely add one of James Lee Burke's "Dave Robicheaux" novels to your list of books to read. You will not be sorry.

"Duct tape can't fix that."
"Look on the Bright Side" by Steve Miller.
It's a page turner.
The Last Lion Winston Churchill Defender of the Relm
Truly a wonderful read by William Manchester and Paul Reed
Really gives great detail of the war years, the sacrifices, the toil, sweat and tears ending in victory.
Churchill the greatest leader of the 20th Century..... My hero.....
Years ago, I read Happiness Is a Choice. I can't remember who wrote it, but it changed my outlook on life.
About to start real men cry in the dark. By Michael basden
Underrated post IMO
Now reading Reversed Thunder by Eugene Peterson. It's excellent.
I'm reading Volume II right now. It's great but it a challenge to sit down and commit to some days.
Just started Big Woods by Faulkner this week.
"You’re either a block-gobbler, a farmer, or you’re a damn hunter and playmaker."
Minirth and Meier?
Penthouse Forum from January. Amazing the situations these average guys find themselves in. This one guy, describes himself as average looking and not very well endowed...anyway he went to dentist and it turns out the hygienist was really hot and they did stuff I didn't even know existed right there in the dental chair!!!! Unreal.
The only problem is that I find I can only read it for like a minute and then I lose interest. Going to take forever to finish it.
I am reading "No Easy Day", which is about the raid on Osama Bin Laden by Seal Team 6. Awesome book!
"By God Woodrow....That ain't the point."
Dr. Neil is one of the most interesting folks around. Whenever he is on the tube, we try to check in and see what he's up to and thinking today.
I will get this book.
Thanks for posting.....
Reading "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed. It is about her struggles on and off the PCT, the Pacific Crest Trail.
(Next up is "Tap Dancing to Work", a book about Warren Buffett and then finally that book on Steve Jobs....)
Just finished "Born to Run"
Recommend to any runner
I dated that chic too. Hell, I almost married her.
Just recently finished two sci-fi books, Old Twentieth and Camouflage, by a guy name Joe Haldeman. Pretty interesting reads.
Now I'm working on Killing Lincoln, a book I got as a Christmas gift. It seems ok so far, although it can be kind of corny or cliche at times.
