I have a Kindle now and I love it. Best investment I've made since buying gold early last year. I've already read several books and thanks to the Kindle Owner's Lending Library and Amazon's Daily Deals, I've discovered some great stuff, and also quite a few disappointments.
The Settlers of Catan - seriously, it's a book now! Rebecca Gable, a German historical writer took the classic board game elements and set it up as the Nordic settlement in Iceland in the 10th century. As literature it wasn't that great, but I was curious to see how the elements of the game will be woven into the book. To be honest, it was fairly disappointing. Not recommended.
Earth Strike: Star Carrier: Book 1 - Famed military sci-fi and space opera writer returns to what made him famous - humans on the brink of obliteration from an all-powerful galactic empire. This is no Battlestar Gallactica - this is unadulterated space battles with singularity drives and "kinetic-kill" nuclear tipped Krait missle stuff. Pretty fun stuff, but again, not recommended.
Call for the Dead - John Le Carre - Where it all began, with the introduction of George Smiley - the slovenly looking unassuming spy, whose ex-wife lovingly called him toad becaue he looked like one. The precursor to The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. This is where is starts. Seems ancient by modern spy standards (What, no GPS tracking devices? It's 1966!) Brings me back to the classic noir writings of Mickey Spillane and co. Great stuff if you're interested in clandestine genre.
Finally, In the Company of Heroes - Mike Durant. Black Hawk Down is one of my favorite war movies of all time. Nothing else comes close to bringing the science, chaos and horror of modern warfare to cinema and Mike Durant brings alive his tale of being a Somali POW in the Battle of Mogadishu in 1993 with amazing candor. Rivetting read. I think I'm going to pick up Bowden's Black Hawk Down after I finish this.
