Well finished Leviathan Wakes early this week and just finished Caliban's War. Onto Abaddon's Gate. I'm liking this series, will likely be a long wait until June for the 4th book in the series, but there are two side stories IIRC that I can read too.

I'm about halfway through The Coming of the Third Reich. Not a super easy read, lots of very dry bits, but still very interesting.

The book covers the social, economic and political factors that allowed the Nazis to come to power in Germany, starting before World War I.

Apparently there's 2 more books in the series covering the Nazis in power before WWII and then their history during the war. I don't know if I'll be able to make it through those.

Thoreau's Civil Disobedience is also a great read. Only an Essay but still a good read.

Awesome so far wished I'd read this one sooner. Well written and captivating.

Totally predictable, it does open a window to 7th century Celtic culture

Found at the grocery store used book rack.

Will be starting WOOL by Hugh Howey tomorrow. Book 1 of 3.
Have jury duty next week, so stocked up on some reading material, just in case.
