I'm just about halfway through "The Godfather Returns" by Winegardner.  Mostly takes place between the first 2 movies, and is a good read so far.  Lots of Fredo characterization.  I'll probably read DaVinci Code next.

"Masters of Chaos"  It's a book about the Special Forces from the past 20 years.  A lot of their contributions have gone unnoticed...as they should be, but not unappreciated.

The Stand by Stephen King.  My favorite novel of his.  I dust it off every couple of years and read it again.  I love revisiting some of the characters.

I just finished Dan Brown's Deception Point. It was right up my ally and I read it in less than a week.

Sorry, I don't have the attention span to read anything longer than a magazine or newspaper.  :-\

Hell, I barely have the attention span to finish this post.

I just finished Watership Down.  What a great novel.  It's right up there with LOTR if you ask me.

I've always wanted to read Watership Down. Loved the animated film. I think you just put that on my must list.

Watership Down is getting bumped for Death of a Salesman at the moment. :P

Faerie Tale by Raymond E. Feist.

Quite cliched, but it's still pretty enjoyable.

I've been getting into the really-obscure, non-mainstream stuff lately.

For example, I'm currently reading Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, and before that it was Harry Potter 6

Up next is Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

Non-mainstream stuff.
