Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, 1818 and 1831 versions. Just started, but it seems different from "Young Frankenstein" with Gene wilder.....

Brandon Sanderson Mistborn series. Actually having it read to me on my drive to work.

It's pretty good after you get a few chapters in. It's a Lord of the Rings/Game of Thrones type book series.

I read the first book and enjoyed it. A book I did just finish, which I loved, is With the Old Breed. Really good book and I think part of it was used for the pacific mini series

Great trilogy, didn't care for the following trilogy as much though

Sanderson has some great novels

I just finished re-reading, "Boyd: The Fighter Pilot Who Changed the Art of War," by Robert Coram.

I just started, "The Men Who Killed the Luftwaffe," by Jay Stout.

Next up is, "The Last Season," by Eric Blehm.

Someone on here recommended "A man called Intrepid" so I am about half way done. Great so far.

A couple of post-apocalyptic page turners:

The Wolves of Winter, Tyrell Johnson 2018 (just finished)

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel 2014 (started)

Kind of reminds me of The Stand, The Road, Fever, The Earth Abides, etc.

I just finished a foray back through Jack London’s “Tales of the North”, a collection of stories including “Call of the Wild” and “White Fang” as well as others.
Now I am about 1/2 way through “Methhusalah’s Children” by Robert Heinlein.
Both of these are books I’ve had for years. I read very few “new” books. I am comfortable re-reading what I know I like.

“Freedom Betrayed, Herbert Hoover’s Secret History of the Second Wood War and It’s Aftermath”. Interesting history, heavily footnoted.

Just finished the last book in Forstchen's EMP trilogy "The Final Day".

A page-turner for sure. I usually read "a bit" after I crawl under the covers, I was up til nearly midnight finishing this one. 8:30 is more my usual lights-out time.

I got Michener's "Centennial" on Kindle for $2.99, a bargain. Never looked at how long it was, just wanted to read it. Well, it's an 1104 page epic and may take me a year to read. I have several books on my library wish list, as they become available "Centennial" will be put aside. Liking it so far, I'm about a quarter of the way in.

Picked the Boyd book up at the USAF Museum in Dayton in 2006, then proceeded to plow through it in about three days. It's also the book I have lent to other people more than any other. Fascinating person, and did a TON for this country. Also, who doesn't love a good rabble-rouser?!?

I read the Stout book a few months ago, it was also very good.

I have recently finished:

The German Aces Speak, by Colin D. Heaton and Anne-Marie Lewis. It had potential, but was told in a clunky manner, based on old interviews. Interesting nonetheless.

A Brief History of the Samurai, by Jonathan Clements. It should have been titled, A Utterly Ridiculous Brief History of the Samurai. I do not recommend it.

I am currently reading:

Expeditionary Force, Book 5: Zero Hour, by Craig Alanson. I LOVE this series, and the characters/story within it. Highly recommended.
