At the moment I have rather a large pile of books on my bedside table, all of which I'm in the process of reading. Some I've just started, others, I've been going at for a while now. They are:
-The End: The Defiance and Destruction of Hitler's Germany, 1944-1945, by Ian Kershaw.
-The Strat In The Attic: Thrilling Stories of Guitar Archeology, by Deke Dekerson.
-Who I Am, by Pete Townshend.
-Rommel's Lieutenants: The Men Who Served the Desert Fox, France, 1940, by Samuel W. Mitcham, Jr.
-This Wheel's on Fire: Levon Helm and the Story of the Band, by Levon Helm with Stephen Davis.
-On Some Faraway Beach: The Life and Times of Brian Eno, by David Sheppard
-Rolling Thunder Against the Rising Sun: The Combat History of U.S. Army Tank Battalions in the Pacific in World War II, by Gene Eric Salecker.
You can cay they're all history books. They're all books that are my personal property, not library books. And there's at least another history book I should really go buy, assuming a copy is still in the cheapy section at McNally-Robinson in a few days. Not that I'll tell you what that book is, you might go buy them all out if I do.
