Im not currently reading anything but the book Ive ordered and am highly looking forward to is called Possums and Bird Dogs by Peter Nolan. http://www.allenandunwin.com/Shopping/ProductDetails.aspx?ISBN=9781741146356 Its about the story of 161 Reconnaissance Flight, the Australian Army Aviation unit deployed to Vietnam from September 1965 to March 1972, told through unit and personal records, pilot and aircraft log books and personal interviews with veterans. Im very interested as my father was a Vietnam Veteran in this group and as he fails to talk about his experiences, I hope to learn more about him through reading about others who dealt with the same things everyday.

Right now, I'm reading a book about "The World's Most Notorious Men". It is about men who made a mark in history due to their notoriety. From crooks and conmen, to mass murderers and sadistic killers. It is a chronicles about the notorious acts of crime, passion and insanity that have left the world aghast. There are stories from Attila the Hun, Ivan the Terrible and Marquis de Sade. Alongside the modern day rogues like Al Capone, the Kray twins and Adolf Hitler.

Currently I am reading Fools Die by Mario Puzo. I generally like Puzo's books though the language used in them is generally crude and there is a lot of violence in them. I loved the Godfather and the family. That is why I picked up this book. But, to be honest, I am not impressed with this one till whatever I have read till now. Cheers! Ram

I'm always reading the Holy Bible. There's a newly published plain translation from the Greek - GENESIS, EXODUS, LEVITICUS (Greek-English). Our basic knowledge of everything in life came from the first three books of the Holy Bible. This book and others are found at http://www.lulu.com/arseniajoaquin
