Re: What book(s) are you reading right now?
Took the weekend and finally polished off H.W. Brands "Lone Star Nation".
Interesting take and background on the founding of Texas through the eyes of the half dozen men who were it's key leaders. Lots of great insight, always a fan of Brands style, littered with great small stories inside the larger picture. If your a history fan, especially the 1820-1850 US History buff, I'd recommend it.
Had a friend recommend "Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer" by Warren St. John so I ordered it on BN.com this weekend. It's about a NYTimes Reporter who is from Alabama, who returns home for a year and follows the Crimson Tide football team all season in an RV, and writes about the expierence. Heard it's hillarious, so I'll report back when I get my copy. May take me a little longer than I'd like, thanks to my re-entrance in classes, but hopefully I can attack it with a vengence.
