I'm reading John Grisham's "An Innocent Man" right now as a short light hearted break from all the Dawkins I've been reading lately.

JustDave, Killer Angels is amazing. Shaara's son, Jeff, picked up where he left off with a couple of others, "The Last Full Measure" and "Gods and Generals." All were unbelievable and stoked my obsession with the Civil War (or the War of Northern Aggression, as our Southern friends call it).
