She Reads Everything

I love books. Just staring at my bookshelves gives me a sense of peace. Rather than any specific genre, I love good books. To me a good book is one that at the end leaves me happier and/or smarter.

This Man's Army: A Soldier's Story from the Frontlines of the War on Terrorism

This Man's Army: A Soldier's Story from the Front Lines of the War on Terrorism - Andrew Exum The (non-fiction) account of an Army Ranger's deciding to join the army, surviving Ranger Training School, then deploying to Afghanistan as a platoon leader with the 10th Mountain Division.Exum is an excellent writer and uses fascinating details and anecdotes. This was a great read to learn about Ranger training, army camaraderie, and the battle experience. Crude at times, but never unbelievable.
