    Does that have anything to do with the 101st Airborne ("Band of Brothers")?

    I just finished Robert Ludlum's "The Bourne Identity," and I'm now reading Pierre Ouellette's "The Deus Machine."

    Yes it does, but not necessarily 'Band of Brothers'

    I recall that frequent runs up and down Mount Currahee were part of the 101st's training regimen described in Band of Brothers, which is why I asked. Thanks.

    I finished my Andy McNab novel, and I'm now beginning Stephen King's "Dreamcatcher".

    Although that book was very disgusting, for those who don't know, it is about the horrors of the Chicago meat industry before the Pure Food and Drug Act was passed. I am still eating meat though

    Shogun, James Clavell

    A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson

    The Family, Mario Puzo

    John Adams, David McCullough

    Band of Brothers, Stephen E. Ambrose

    The Cold Six Thousand, James Ellroy

    The Empty Chair, Jeffery Deaver

    The Vanished Man, Jeffery Deaver

    Ties That Bind, Phillip Margolin

    Star Trek: New Frontier, Peter David

    Of those books, I would consider the Margolin, Deaver and Puzo books "fun beach books", and whereas in the past, I would have been done with them in a day or two, this time, I'm not particularly absorbed by any of them.

    Strangely, I'm most taken with the Bryson and Clavell books.

    The McCullough, Ambrose and Ellroy are all "historical fiction/non-fiction" and have places of average interest in my list.

    Yes, I'm reading them all at the same time. I can't stand not having something around to read when I just want to pick something up to read.
