^^Great opening paragraph there, from memory.


Currently reading: 'Kremlin Rising: Vladimir Putin's Russia and the End of Revolution' - Peter Baker & Susan Glasser

Chilling, fascinating, bewildering.

One of those books you borrow from the library, love reading so much you realise you cannot live without owning it & have to get it from amazon asap...ya know? No? Hmm maybe that's just me lol


Also: 'AK-47 -The Story of the People's Gun' - Michael Hodges

for truly obvious reasons

I just picked up Stephen A. Camp's "Shooters Guide to the Browning Hi Power". I'll read it cover to cover and then use it as a reference book.

I've been reading this.

"If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strenght, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow to be arrogant. If he is taking ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, seperate them. If soverign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected."

I'm always reading history and anthropology books (lately I've been focusing on biological anthropology of the human skeleton and Spanish civil war journals).

Fiction wise I've been reading some Henry James stories (The figure in the carpet, The lesson of the master, John Delavoy, etc.) and some plays by Bertolt Brecht (Life of Galileo and Mother Courage and her children, I'll try to find a copy of Señora Carrar's rifles tomorrow).

And I'm always reading some sort of poetry. I just love it. If I could only get payed to read poetry and fight all day long...

The Moon is Down by John Steinbeck

Originally a cautionary fiction about resistance in Nazi occupied America written for OSS and COI (predecessors to the CIA), but changed to an unnamed nation because Bill Donovan thought it would be bad for morale....

I just took the last exam for my degree, living subjects I'm not so good with but I can make those bones speak! Too bad that it's not a very profitable career in Argentina, so I'll have to start law school next semester.
