Default What are you reading?

I have no television, so I read a lot. I love reading.
Right now I'm reading Philip Kerr's latest Bernie Gunther story. "A Man Without Breath".
I've read all of the B.G. books, and a few of his others. A great series covering Bernie from 1933 Germany, through the 1940s in South America, and Cuba then imprisonment in the US, and on.

I'm also slogging through Dante's Inferno. I have a good translated version and a "modern" translation to compare.

I started on John Donne recently, but that's going a bit slow.

How about you folks? What's your summer reading?

I am reading Musashi's " Book of Five Rings " again, much of the philosophy and teachings can be applied to much more than training with the sword. It can be a difficult read so I am on my third time,, find something I missed every time it seems.

41-D Man of Valor
SWAT Officer Randy Simmons of Los Angeles. About his whole life. As well as his unselfish contribution to his family, the Agency, the citizens and children in the community and his untimely death on a SWAT call out! Sometimes the Good Die Young! Saw the documentary on TV a while back. He was the kind of individual we all wish we could have known.
Great Read! I would recommend it!

Great series franklin. I read a lot of Clancy as well.

the current read is Rise of the Governor Part one, by Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonasinga. next will be the Fall of the Governor Part two by the same. Even with the move, i should be done with both by the end of the week (one of the few good points to a medical retirement is time to actually enjoy a book).

I just picked up the latest release from Stephen King (yes I know he is a lib and a democrat, but he is also a damn good author IMHO. I blame mom for getting me hooked on his books.), Mr. Mercedes. Kind of a deviation from his usual stuff, this one is a murder mystery. I'll get around to reading it after I am settled in at the Erie house.
