"The Forgotten Soldier" by Guy Sayer. It's an autobiography of an Alsace-born German soldier during WWII. It's a little difficult to read sometimes because of the guys whiny tone, but it's good nonetheless.

Far, far too many articles, journals, and books on Autism for school.

Along the same line, Drug Counseling.

Nothing for fun right now. Sad

Lets see

"Microbiology: an introduction"
"Anatomy and Physiology part 2"
"Contemporary Nutrition: issues and insights"
"America First hand"
"A line in the sand: The alamo in blood and memory"
"Psychology: an introduction"
"The Struggle for Democracy"
"Texas Government"
"Contested Terrain: An American Politics Reader"
"Development through the lifespan"

I think thats all of them. Unless you want to count lab manuals as well. I don't really recommend any of them for leisure so far.

You know, pfff, you'd fare better in this fast-paced world if you'd throw something cerebral into your recreational reading.

At the moment, Hawkmistress! - Marion Zimmer Bradley.
After the move, i'll be back up to my typical 3 books at a time.

Oh, Running With the Buffaloes was a great book!
