Veil: the secret wars of the CIA.....

I'm trying to read a bit into Ground Branch...lol bought the book for 2 euro at a local supermarket.

I'm reading First In by Gary C. Schroen(About half-way through) and I'm probably gonna buy Jawbreaker as well in order to read into GB as well. And it was the only good book I saw at the book store in the mall. They don't have a good history section. Only cost me about 7 bux.

I'm often in second hand book shops, they have books for 1 € bought rogue squadron red cell last month, not exactly my style of writing, but for that price a good holiday snack. (read at night when the kids sleep)

I'm reading a book about a female terrorist hunter at the mo. dunno the author .....

Just finished Moment of Truth in Iraq, by Michael Yon. Most amazing book I've read so far, by a reporter who knows what he's talking about, because he's logged the most time there. Can't say much else about it, just look at the reviews on Amazon.....

I'm not currently reading anything aside from boring textbooks for school. The last good book I read was Halo: Contact Harvest. If anyone is a fan (or not) of Halo, I recommend reading through all the novels. They all go much deeper into the story than any of the games do and they fill in the gaps between games as well.

Contact Harvest tells the story of humanity's first contact with the Covenant, and the story revolves around Sgt. Johnson and, to a certain extent, Pvt. Jenkins. Jenkins you might remember from Halo: Combat Evolved. Though he wasn't a main character in the game, he did have an interesting supporting role at one point.

I can neither confirm or deny... 0:)

I will say that the USS San Juan is on the cover...and I know 2 of the 3 people up in the bridge.

I'm reading one of the novels based off the TV show 24 called Trinity.

This book also reminds me why that The New York Times is full of those who practice yellow journalism. It's one thing to keep check on the government, but something else to blow secrets out of the water.
