    Don't Think of an Elephant by George Lakoff.

    And I just got done reading House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. It was one of the most unique books I've ever read, and I'd recommend it to everyone. It's difficult, but worth it.

    American Raiders by AF Col. (ret) Wolfgang W. E. Samuel.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I just started reading The Godfather by Mario Puzo. It's the first fiction book I've read in several years.

    Here's another you can read when you aren't watching Barny Miller or Sanford and Son.

    I found it to be much more entertaining than the movie.

    Kind of a mix between the First and second movies, and filled with all sorts of great side stories. However, the Puzo series declines, in some cases sharply, when it comes to the sequals.

    I've only got one favorite book, so I read it over and over.
    It's entitled "Redszone.com" and has multiple "authors"!!! :mhcky21:

    Re: What are you reading now?

    I recently finished James Webb's "Born Fighting," which is about the Scots-Irish. I'm trying to decide whether to go back to David Hackett Fischer's "Washington's Crossing," which I'm part way through, or start Jeff Shaara's "To The Last Man," a historical novel of WWI.

    Reading The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.

    It's the one of the citywide books for the Cincinnati library book club. We're reading it for our neighborhood book club.
