Besides guns, one of my other interests is reading (history, military memoirs, American history).

I'm currently reading "John Adams" by David McCullough.

In the long line after, I have on deck "Truman" also by McCullough, and "1776" again, by McCullough.

I find it refreshing to jump from one point in history to another, then back again. Keeps me interested. I won't even get into how many memoirs I have in my collection from WWII, mostly from the German perspective. Actually, I'd say it's pretty evenly divided. I just ordered six more books tonight, mainly focusing on the Founding Fathers. On a big Revolutionary War kick as of late.

Just finished The Perfect Pass by S.C. Gwynne, which traces the development of the "Air Raid" offense that has infected football. Very informative book.

I'm reading "American Betrayal" by Diana West. It's not a fun read.

Young Earth by Frank Morris -- an apologetic for a 6-10k year old earth by using a historical-grammatical interpretation of Genesis.

FYI, radioisotope dating is not accurate between the different isotopes and even if it were, it would call for uniformitarianism or a physical steady-state decay rate which, at very best for the evolutionist, is arguable - highly.

Very informative.

The Reformation by Will Durant. I'm about ¾ through a 1,000 page history of the Reformation of the Roman Catholic Church leading to Protestantism. Very interesting and very enlightening.
