    I recently finished the copy that pardus sent me for Christmas. It definitely could have been shorter, but it was worth sticking it out until the end. I won't mention the ending so as not to be a spoiler ;)

    I actually made myself finish it before getting into my next book. Needless to say, I did quite a bit of scanning through the last 400 pages. I'm glad I finished it, but again, could have easily been 1/3 the length. The book. That I read. Nothing else. Perverts... :D

    I have a copy of Perestroika by old Mikhail if anyone wants it. I found it in a "take it we don't want it" pile at uni but I can't read more than 10 pages of it without going to sleep or laughing so hard my brain explodes.

    That sounds interesting...I'll take it!

    I have Brotherhood of Warriors, by Aaron Cohen, got it for .50 at a garage sale. Was a good read about his journey to become an IDF Commando, not much if any chest thumping which was good. http://www.amazon.com/Brotherhood-Warriors-Behind-Commando-Counterterrorism/dp/0061236152

    Happy to send it out, please PM me your address and I'll try to get to the PO tomorrow.

    Warchief, I can send it to you when I am done if you'd like. I "claimed" it a few posts up.

    Skrewz, are you in San Diego right now? Or is that where you're going next? Either way, I'll be there in a few days and I'd like to pick up American Sniper.
