    What is Armour Wanderer, is it any good? I'm interested in peoples favourite reads.
    Armor (minus the "U" officially, can you tell I like British literature?) is hard to describe; it's a fantastic read if you're at all a fan of science fiction or novels involving the military, and it's a compelling novel in it's own right. It's about the human psyche, more than anything. I've never found a novel like it. I'm told it's not for everyone, but I would highly recommend you give it a read. Don't judge it by the cover art though.

    Kristallnacht: A Tale of Survival... Celia Elkin
    Auschwitz...Miklos Nyiszli
    In The Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin...Erik Larsen

    I really need to lighten my reads!!

    Edit: I recently joined the typeC group on FB but I'm not that guy Craig. I was just looking at that page and realized this post was also pretty much all about Hitler. (Though I did write a comment on the FB thread).

    Hmmm, I just realized that I haven't read any true books in a while, almost a year in fact.

    I think the list goes...

    War & Peace
    Crime and Punishment
    Dracula

    Unless you count manga, then the list is obviously a bit different.

    People really read War & Peace? I thought it was just something you say you do because nobody can challenge it since they've never actually "read" it either!

    Haha, actually, that's why I started reading it, because I wanted to be able to say I did without that little lie. But once you get started it really is a decent story... Well, if you can keep the different characters straight. I honestly think that it should have been broken up into story arcs for each character or something instead of made as a large novel, but that's just me.

    JTG started reading it, he said he liked it, I'm not sure if he finished it though. That's quite a commitment. I told him he should have read Anna Karenina instead.

    I dunno. It's constantly mentioned for a reason, right? May as well find out what that reason is for myself. War & Peace wasn't on the top of my to-read list; however, when I inadvertently finished The Lord of the Rings on a road trip and had a limited library on my ipod, War and Peace seemed as fitting a book at the time as any.

    I think its always mentioned because at this point nobody wants to be "that guy" who never read it. I will stand up and say....I have never read it, I have never gotten the Cliff's Notes, if its a movie I have never seen it! Literally, all I know about it is that Tolstoy wrote it and he is from Russia. The End.

    Edit:....I forgot a smiley!!
