Since we have the 'what are you listening to' thread, I decided to toss in a 'what are you reading right now' thread?

And if you aren't currently reading anything in particular, what sorts of stuff do you like to read (if you enjoy reading in the first place)?

I'm currently reading for the second time "A Brotherhood of Valor: The Common Soldiers of the Stonewall Brigade, C.S.A., and the Iron Brigade, U.S.A.' by Jeffry D. Wert. They are my two favorite Civil War brigades and I can not begin to say how well researched and written this book is.

Next two reads will be Alan Nolan's 1961 brigade history of the Iron Brigade "The Iron Brigade: A Military History" (which I've read countless times borrowing my Dad's copy) and "A Full Blown Yankee of the Iron Brigade: Service with the Sixth Wisconsin Volunteers" by Rufus Dawes (once they get here from Amazon).

Dead Of Night by Jonathan Maberry

"A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side effects. Before he could be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious.
Small-town cop Dez Fox and her partner JT are caught in a wave of murder as everyone they know and love die...only to rise again as the ravenous living dead. If Dez and JT can't contain the plague inside the town limits, the infection will spread beyond all control.
This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but a bite."

I've just bought The Walking Dead Compendium One off Amazon, so I'm looking forward to reading that in the next couple of days! It's the first 48 issues of the comic in one book. Does anyone here read the comic series?

Currently, I have been reading "New Rules", by Bill Maher and "American Conspiracies", by Jesse Ventura. I hope to obtain some James Thurber soon.

My literature teacher from high school, who I still talk to after all these years, has recommended William Faulkner and Eudora Welty, so I shall try to find some of their works as well.

Wow! I'm still on my original and the only problem I've had is one very large bookset that wouldn't load properly. Have you tried rebooting it? You have to hold the power switch for quite a while until it actually powers off instead of going to sleep.

No this is the screen getting a cracked look. It is a known defect with the model I have. I think yours is older. My son has his text books on it now I am getting a Kindle fire in March. I feel so lost without it lol the last time this happened is when I came home from Fl in Oct. Amazon is replacing it again it will be here Monday or Tuesday. I have in a shock case and keep it in a Belkin case so nothing sitting on it.

Yes, mine is an original. I also keep it in (purple) Belkin. Sometimes newer is not better. I have an original iPad, too.
