I did a quick search and I didn't see a post for this topic. So here are my resent reads and I can recommend all three!

Unintended Consequences John Ross
Enimies Foreign and Domestic trilogy Matt Bracken: http://www.enemiesforeignanddomestic.com/ I have read the first two and just downloaded the
third one onto my computer from Amazon.

Share your top reads both fiction and non-fiction. :D

I have read Bracken Enemies Foreign and Domestic, good read. I'll probably get the other two.

Recently I have read Mas Ayoob In the Gravest Extreme, highly recommended.
Also I started Holbrook Founder's Second Amendment, that's a heavy read, but very good.
I am also in the process of reading Levin Ameritopia.

I wish I didn't have to work, I could spend a lot more time reading :)

I also read "In the Gravest Extreme", and it's a good book for anyone interested in CCW. I'll donate the book to RIFOL, and if anyone is interested in reading it, send me a PM and I will mail it to you. The only thing I will ask for is that you read the book, and pass it on to the next person who requests it.

Some great reads guys!

One Second After was the turning point for my wife. Once she read that she was all into Prepping.

If you liked One Second After SirSqueeboo, you may want to read Patriots by James Rawles. He just releasted a new book called Survivors that clears up some of the gaps in Patriots.

I have a PDF of Unintended Consequences on my computer. If anybody would like an "E" version PM me and I will send it to you. This book is currently banned in Canada. The author was harrased by the FBI during it's first printing. He had to change a few lines in the book before the second printing was released.

I just finished Atlas shrugged: CD version. I would listen to it during long drives. It was amazing!!!

Newportri, thank you for the offer. I may take you up on it. :D

Wow, it looks like this forum is turning into a book reading club :-)

JohnyMac, send me a PM with the address you want me to send it to. It reads fast and I think most people can read it in a month and if no one else requests if after a month, I request that you send it back to me.
http://www.amazon.com/In-Gravest-Extreme-Personal-Protection/dp/0936279001/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1333497058&sr=8-1

I am not giving away the following books, but they are also highly recommended.
This one I read over xmas and it has amazing stories from various battles in the Middle east after 9/11, even some about men who received the Medal of Honor.
http://www.amazon.com/American-Heroes-Special-Operations-Oliver/dp/B006Z2UV6U/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1333497110&sr=1-3

This is also a great book about legendary sniper Carlos Hathcock (93 confirmed kills). It starts out with his early life where he hunting with a .22 to feed his family. It then goes into his military career and amazing service in Vietnam.

I liked Patriots, although I was annoyed by his tedious description of every piece of gear. Overall, I liked it enough to buy it.

Surprisingly enough a lot of people have told me that the Hunger Games trilogy is pretty good. I think I might give that a try.

A book I really enjoyed was Brothers, Rivals, Victors: Eisenhower, Patton, Bradley and the Partnership that Drove the Allied Conquest in Europe If you are a history buff, then this is a must read!

Another good book is Lights Out by David Crawford.

For along time it was not available in print only an "E" book. It is now out in paperback. My wife LOVED this book! She read it right after One Second After.

Thanks for all of the book suggestions.

I just read a few comments on In the Gravest Extreme. Seems like a great book.

John, when you finish the book, can you pass that to me? Thanks. :D
