What book are you reading?

Still hashing my way through The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt.

Was at the book store and spotted it. Opened it up and read a passage about how he had to go against an American who took some friends and invaded then overthrew the Nicaraguan Government which back then was called fillibusting. Was intrigued, quite a life he led, had no clue, don't recall talking much about him at all in School.

Amazon.com: The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt (9780375415425): T.J. Stiles: Books

The blood child - butler

and Wilderness tips - Atwood

So far blood child isn't bad I will admit that.

edit: Wrong author too many books mixing around.

This thread actually made me want to go back and re-read a book called "Let A Soldier Die."

It's about a helicopter pilot in Vietnam named Bear. It's a really good read. I couldn't put it down.

Currently reading Rainbow Six. I already read it, but it was a few years back, and I was in the mood for a good military-type book.
