            I recently read "Gates of Fire: An Epic Novel of the Battle of Thermoplae." The book is fiction; however, it's based on the historic battle of the Spartans at Thermoplae in 480 BC. I could not put the book down. If you want to read about "old school" warriors this is the book. The Spartans were a warrior society and they were fearless soldiers. I highly recommend it.

              Wifey just read "The sex lives of Cannibals" its about a guy that goes to the Pacific coast island of Tarwa or something like that. He lvies with the Caribe's people and I dont know, she just said its incredible. No electricity, no real toilets. She is into these types of books. Me, I read the latest issues of MAXIM and FHM I will buy the Under and ALone book with that ATF agent. Sounds great.

                  I'm reading Dan Brown's books (so far DaVinci Code. Angels and Demons, and Deception Point). The pace of these books is amazing. They are great.

                    I've read all of Christopher Moore's books.... they are all excellent. Laugh out loud funny. Patiently awaiting a new one.

                          Oh, as a family we read (or was read to) The Chronicles of Narnia and now for bedtime reading we are working on The Lord of the Rings.
                          Tolkein is alot more wordy than Lewis, at least in the Chronicles of Narnia, so it takes a little more concentration for me to read out loud, but I think my son is too young to even care right now.

                          I need to start writing down the titles of these books you guys are recommending, they sound great

                            I hate cop books but this is without a doubt the best book I've ever read, and the best way for a noncop to try and understand what you do:

                            Homicide by David Simon

                            You can't read the first two pages and then walk away from it. A great read for cops and noncops.


                            Band of Brothers is an extraordinary book and should not be missed.


                            DaVinci Code was a very well written book, it was impossible to put down.


                            Another Cop book but interesting "The Underground Empire" by James Mills. It is a thick book and the first 80 pages or so are very slow and rough. If you can get by that you will have a very well written book.
                            We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
                            For he today that sheds his blood with me
                            Shall be my brother - Henry V


                            "Why didn't you put that out on the radio?"
                            "I don't know, I guess I got caught up in the moment Sarge"
                            "The MOMENT is when we F--king need you!" - K-9 Sgt Myhre to unidentified Officer

                                .
                                Gotta back you on Homicide, it was the basis for the TV show, Simon also wrote a book called The Corner- same premise but he followed some families that deal dope in W. Balto and it was very well written, also made into an HBO 6 part miniseries with Charles ROC S. Dutton who grew up in Balto. I love cop books even after 10 yurs of this stuff. I might get "Blue Blood" by Ed Conlon, retired NYPD detective, comes from a family of cops. I loved "Brooklyn Bounce" and "The making of a Cop" and "the making of a Detective"
                                I got nothing for now
