Great bunch of books! I've finished most of the main line books (through Ashes of Victory) and then started reading the anthologies to get all of the intervening stories that happen between Ashes and the next book, War of Honor.

You can get damn near all of the Honor Harrington books through the Baen CD archives (here's one of the mirrors) or a goodly number of them directly through the Baen Free e-Book Library, plus lots of stuff from other authors.

The Baen CD Archive is neat. Basically, before the Kindle and iPhone came out and made e-books the next big thing, Baen started putting CDs in select hardbacks that had DRM-free electronic versions from many of their popular authors. It was a great idea, as it's pretty much how a drug dealer operates - you get the first taste free, and then you'll come back for more. The Archive mirrors also have the blessing of Baen and the authors, as only one author - Lois McMaster Bujold - has asked that her previously free books not be included, and her works can not be found in the Archive mirrors.

The problem with America is that we confuse our politics for religion, and our religions for science.

I'm on the tail end of Plato's "The Republic". It is a very dense book for only 450ish pages long.
A world is supported by four things: the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the righteous, and the valor of the brave. But all of these are as nothing without a ruler who knows the art of ruling. Discourses on Galactic Leadership

"Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves." - Bill Hicks

I just finished Timothy Zahn's The Hand of Thrawn Duology. It was ok. While I have a sizable To Be Read (TBR) pile, nothing is screaming for attention right now.

I just picked up Inferno by Dan Brown.
It is the new Robert Langdon novel following the Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code novels.

Currently reading One Second After by Forstchen. Basically the US is hit by an EMP and what the after effects are. Really good read, highly recommend it.

Just finished Feed by Mira Grant, about to start World War Z, while I am waiting for the next Patrick Frievald book to be released. I am on a bit of a zombie lit kick.

Also reading the Iron Druid series by a local author Kevin Hearne. Highly recommend it.
