Whatcha reading redux.

Everything cultural, pop or otherwise. Books, movies, music, comics, poetry, random cultural geekery.

Recently finished Dan Hampton's Hunter Killers, a good book about the Wild Weasel program. Currently reading George Eliot, The Mill on the Floss.

Three Felonies A Day

Should be reclassified under the "horror" genre.

Just started The History of the Peloponnesian War By Thucydides. Not far into it enough to make a judgement.

Also been rereading I and II Samuel. Reminds me that it has to be history because no one would make that stuff up about themselves thinking it would make them look good.

Ace Atkins' continuations of the Spenser series.
Very well done.

Still working on the previous book, but I did take a break from it to read Forged in Blood by Mad Mike.

I was supposed to go get some milk over 7 hours ago. But instead I just drank some water and kept reading until I was done.

The Godfather.

I've seen the movie I don't know how many times but for some reason I never bought the book until a few days ago. I should have bought that book 30 years ago.

Just finished Downfall, by Richard Frank (about the decision to use atomic weapons in Japan -- highly recommended; he did his homework). About halfway through Adam Bede (George Eliot).
