Skip to comments.What Are You Reading Now? - My Quarterly Inquiry
Posted on 03/28/2008 6:52:40 AM PDT by MplsSteve
OK everyone, it's time for my quarterly "What Are You Reading Now" post.
I like to get a feel for what Freepers are reading these days. It can be anything...a best seller, a literary classic, a trashy pulp novel, a scientific journal, etc.
Do not demean this thread with posts like "I'm reading this Thread right now". It became un-funny a long time ago.
I'll start. I've just started "One Square Mile Of Hell: The Battle For Tarawa" by John Wukovitz.
Rather than a minute by minute account of the battle, it takes a more personalized view of the battle by interviewing a few combatants and the families of those who died in the battle. I wasn't sure I'd like this format at first - but am really starting to get into this book.
Well...what are YOU reading right now?
Dead Heat by Joel Rosenberg.
The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron.
I’m reading about 5 different books right now. I’m concentrating on The Case for Mars by Robert Zubrin, but I have I think 4 other books in various stages of completion.

Have been wading through “Please Understand Me II, Temperament, Character, Intelligence” by David Keirsey. Decided to take a break recently, so have regressed to reading novels based on Star Trek; currently “Tales from the Captain’s Table”, a series of short stories told from the viewpoint of various captains.
2. L. E. Moddsitt(sp.) --Corelean series, Recluce series....

Everything written by W.E.B. Griffin — in series order, if available...
Right now, I’m reading “Basic Economics” by Dr. Thomas Sowell and also reading study guides for the Network+ certification.
Dead Heat by Joel Rosenberg.
AHHHHH, I’m breathlessly awaiting my copy. Since it isn’t here yet I’m going to read the preceding books in the series (again) for the 4th time. I’m also in the middle of Peggy Noonans very old book “what I learned at the Revolution” I know that she isn’t very popular here but “When Character was King” was an eloquent, beatiful tribute to the Regan years and made me want to be a fan forever.
“At Dawn We Slept”, by Gordon W. Prange.
The untold story of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Also, I pushed myself to finish A.T. Mahan’s “The Effect of Seapower Upon History”.
