    What's everyone reading?

    It's tmie agian for the semi regular thread where everyone lists the booms they're reading and what they plan to read in the near future.

    I'm almost done with Cobra II and next up is Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and bin Laden, From the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001 and Charlie Wilson's War.

    I actually stopped reading Ghost Wars because I wanted something a little lighter so I'm rereading David Poyer's The Passage for the about the third time.

    We-ll......

    My text books on endocrine systems and clinical neuropsychology; papers on andrenaline junkies; more papers on GIS and crisis management; then various books on investigations, such as rape, such as fire, such as using drugs in crime; my scuba texts, books on cave and ship diving, Clive Clusser's books on underwater archaeology; youth prostitution in eastern europe; a James White sci fi book (Space Litter); a book on combat surgery, another one on burn centers; then one on Tito; one by Dr. Nielsen, the doctor who had cancer down in Antarctica (IceBound) ........ to name a few. I'm sure there are others around my place, opened, with a book mark in them. Such as the one of the two missionary women rescued in Afghanistan. Or modern Pirates in the southern seas or one on Hitler's personal security (the last two are by the john).

    And then like Ray said:

    "WAB!

    I wish it were not such an addiction and I had more spare time!"

    How very true. I spend too much time here.
