    I never read Shogun but would like to. Mandi mentioned Stephen Hunter. He has quite a few titles, but one of them that will hold your interest literally page by page is Pale Horse Coming.

    Well at least you've got me back into reading. Went back to my collection of books on the WWII sub wars and decided to read Iron Coffins again.

    Who wrote that one, Ken?

    These recommendations open up a whole new world. As I mentioned, some Marine buddies recommended many authors I never would have heard of. My 8th grade teacher, some 30 years after being in his class in Bakersfield, California, introduced me to the novels of Louis L'Amour.

    I found a lot of stuff on my own, as we all do, those of us who like to read---but I have a lot of folks to thank for recommending specific authors and works.

    Just looked up Iron Coffins on Amazon...Herbert Werner. 276 reviews, nearly 5 star ratings by mostly all readers. I like to check out amazon.com for a lot of my books, with the nearest bookstore 7 miles away and with Borders having closed, amazon PRIME membership comes in handy, two day free shipping. I end up reading one thing after another, maybe 70 or more books a year, not fast, not slow, just regular pace. It got into my blood at some point long ago, I guess.

    Amazon Prime is a godsend. I've used it to buy textbooks as well as "fun" reading for a few years now. Can't beat two day shipping!

    I'll have to check out that Hunter title as well as Iron Coffins. I have a friend who served on subs while in the Navy during the 90's. His sea stories were always a laugh, but his snippets of the history of submarine warfare were very interesting, too.

    I'm also now reading a modern day retelling of the classic Jane Eyre. It's my bedtime reading that I use to wind down after plowing through academic texts. I'm enjoying it.

    Never knew they had books in Bakersfield. I always thought that they only had Merle Haggard.

    Forgot all about ole Buck. I do remember lots of tule fog and many, many oil rigs pumping black gold.

    Yes, indeed. To me, as a kid, they looked like big grasshoppers all over the hills outside of town.

    12 Years A Slave is a good book. I read it a long while back, and started re-reading it when the movie adaptation came out recently. Other things came up, and I didn't finish it. Never saw the movie, either. Anyone seen it and know if it's any good?

    Morning Dave. Great thread you started. That 50 shades of gray is making me want to get some new clothes and become a stud muffin hahahaha.

    I saw 12 years a Slave. Made my eye's water a few times. Came out of the Movie Place a little differant with my thoughts than I did before I went in. Change for the better.
