    Courtesey of Melbo, I have read Patriots (3 times in the past year), Molon Labe, and Unintended Consequences. I am planning on reading Lights Out series, but am in the mood to buy some books to add the the shelf. So, I have been considering Boston's Updated Gun Bible (not fiction, I know, but one for the shelf). Suggestions?

    If you haven't read any of her work, get any or all of Ayn Rand. Not exactly up to date, but the basic principles are there. For pure fun and fantasy Tolkien is hard to beat.

    Well since you did mention non fiction as well, I would say any of John Mcphearsons books or better yet all of them.

    FountainHead first
    Then go to Atlas Shrugged

    The others are great too but I think the above 2 should be read in that order
    We the Living is cool too

    American Caesar by William Manchester. Non fiction but a wonderful read, a real insight Douglas MacArthur

    Try "Alas, Babylon" and "Lucifer's Hammer" for some great doomer fiction.

    Thanks for the suggestions. If anymore come to mind, please post. Over the past year, I have developed an interest in the American Revolution from a true, historical stand point. Do any of you know what is the best, history book that cleary discusses the characters of the revolution as well as the details of what the british did to push this nation towards 'revolution'?

    I wonder if that's generational since its one of my favorites as well. Ever hear the recording of Richard Harris reading it?

    Never heard it read. Could very well be generational. I have my doubts that it is being brought to any one's attention in school these days. Rather a bit of independent spirit teachings. Not PC these days.

    "Most gulls don't bother to learn more than the simplest facts of
    flight - how to get from shore to food and back again. For most gulls, it
    is not flying that matters, but eating. For this gull, though, it was not
    eating that mattered, but flight. More than anything else. Jonathan
    Livingston Seagull loved to fly."

    "The gull sees farthest who flies highest."

    Words to live by.
