    Great! Another history lover! I've read "Landscape Turned Red" and "The Killer Angels" both. Terrific stuff. Last Christmas my father-in-law gave me about 225 Civil War books to add to the ~100 I already had. I've got to get reading!! My father is a big Civil War buff. I didn't get into reading it until after college but now I'm hooked.

    My son currently attends Gettysburg College(Junior) so needless to say I've been walking over the ground quite a bit. I even found the monument for the regiment my oldest son is currently assigned to(5th Cavalry, Black Knights).

    My youngest is into all things Star Wars. Can't really complain though. I started it by buying the box set of the original three movies for him and his brother back in the day.

    Who Needs a Road?
    by Harold Stephens and Albert Podell
    The Story of the Longest and Last Motor Journey Around the World

    A remarkable road trip, and interesting for its historical context well as its adventure.

    I very rarely re-read a book


    I have found two series that I have read a few times

    Jean Auel "The Earth Children" series
    AKA The Clan of the Cave Bear Books
    I found myself re-reading these starting before some hunting seasons, they made me want to go hunt Mammoth :)

    Stephen Hunter "Bob Lee Swagger" Series
    Read "Point of Impact" years ago and found the twist and turns to be well written and found zero "Weapons" mistakes in his writing which is actually odd
    I have read them as they came out usually starting back at POI to read the series start to finish again

    You know, the older we get, the more we can re-read books we've read before, and not realize we've read it several times before.

    Definitely Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage. A superbly written account of men overcoming the harshest of conditions in order to survive. It will certainly make you feel the cold.

    I like to listen to Audio books and Louis L'Amour is #1 followed by Powder River by Jerry Robins and they are all westerns that I enjoy.
    Non Audio books Pierre Burton - great historical writer.
