    Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. Just for a pleasure-read. I've already read most of the series, but a new one came out and so i figured i'd re-read the first few.

    Recently finished reading the first 2 Dexter books...the ones that started the AWESOME show on Showtime. They were really good, but surprisingly very different from the show (except for the gist of the first one). I think i prefer the show. Started the third one and couldn't finish it...wasn't great.

    So, I think I'm going to borrow this book entitled Congratulations, You've Just Met the I.C.F by Cass Pennant.

    A friend recommended it to me. From what I've gathered it's written by a retired leader of the ICF (inner city firm), which is West Ham's firm. Goes into a bunch of different accounts of violence and other hooliganism. Should be an interesting read.

    Just finished The Defector by Daniel Silva, most recent of a series involving a Mossad Agent named Gabriel.

    Also finished The Day of Battle, second in Rick Atkinsons Liberation Trilogy, THE BEST WW2 resource I have ever come across. the first book deals with the african campaign, the second with the italian, and the soon to be released third book will deal with the final european campaign (and perhaps a pacific one to follow separately).

    I highly recommend the book. It is rich with descriptive narrative. You can see the Mediterranean, hear the shells, feel the concussions, smell the charred flesh of the battle ground. It includes army signal corps photos to give some context to the narration, and is full of well researched and thoughtful quips and quotations, all the way from the top brass down to footsoldiers, enemy soldiers, and civilians encountered along the way.
