Reading

Hey, haven't seen any reading material discussed here, so here goes. I love to read and since coming to Kuwait, I have had a lot of time to read, so here goes.

If you guys like books about Special Forces, Women and Beer (I assume most of you will, I recommend these):

A Deeper Blue

There might be one more, but I don't think so. However, I did email the guy (author) and he replied by telling me that Mike Harmon will return (Mike Harmon is the former Navy Seal who is the main character in the series. I HIGHLY recommend these books!!!

Another Series (especially for you Navy types), but good for all:

My favorite Authors are Ken Follett, and Micheal Crichton. I am into more science or fictional early adventure style book. But I know what you mean about having time to read. When theres no missions, thats all I do.

Hey Syn

You should still look into the first author I sent: He has another series that are science fiction as well...I haven't read them, but his writing style is easy to read and I routinely can sit down and read 100-150 pages at a shot, without even thinking about time.

Other than school work, I read this book which was very interesting. I live in NY so I really related to many issue La pierre brought up. Fact checking was dead on. I could verify everything...
