The Jungle Book, by Kipling. I forgot how good it is (not Disney, nope, the real thing).

All I'm going to say about it is that I'm surprised NASA didn't try this...

So I worked at a summer camp and instead of reading a new book, re-read Catch-22 while I was there, and haven't read anything new since I returned. I finally pulled The Fault in Our Stars off the shelf yesterday, just under halfway through now. I very much enjoy it so far. And again, John Green <3

Moby Dick, good read, bad for the Whale. Call me Ishmael(spelling could be wrong...)

Forgot how good this novel is, and how good some film treatise of it was:



Mr. Starbuck...

Finished The Fault in Our Stars just moments ago. I continued to enjoy it and it gets increasingly better as you go. I recommend it. Also, it is a pretty easy read.

Just reading "Warthog: Flying the A-10 in the Gulf War". A really good reading about the A-10 and also giving some many insights into CAS and BAI tactics, as well as into the mindsets of the RFOA-10 pilots. Why should you descent from safe high altitudes into a maelstrom of AAA shells or take-off when the weather is too bad for the fighter jockeys? Simply to protect the ground soldiers lives.

A good combat pilot memoir I recently read was "A Nightmare's Prayer". It was written by a US Marine Corps AV-8B pilot who flew ground support missions in Afghanistan.
