The Hornblower or Sharpe series?

Several books on the late Roman Empire, including Peter Heather's fine work "The Fall of the Roman Empire".

B.B.King's Autobiography. Very interesting how he came from sharecroppers shack to where he is today. He's coming to Calaveras County soon. Would love to see him.

The Steel Remains, Richard K. Morgan.

Wow. Wow. Not for the faint of heart! The sword and sorcery meets sci-fi fantasy genre gone right over the edge.

I could not recommend the Patrick O'Brian series more... It is the best of historical fiction. Currently reading "The Essense of Hayek" by Nishiyama and Leube, and Warped Passages -- Unraveling the Mysteries of the Universe's Hidden Dimensions by Lisa Randall.

Jay Ingram's 'Theatre of the MInd', brilliantly written popular science (as in you don't need a biology degree to understand it). The mind as we know it through science holds more than enough intrigue and mystery that there is no need to sensationalize it.

And, just finished all three movies. Like the Godfather, the first is best; the second is very good; and the third, okay.

Did you see the third movie already? In my country the DVD will be released on August 31. I can't wait.
