    Read a good book lately?

    I've just finished a couple of books...

    First one I wrapped up right before Christmas.

    Charlie Wilson's War

    Oh man what a read. It's supposedly about the largest covert operation in history. The supply of Afgan rebels during the U.S.S.R. war in Afganastan.

    I say supposedly only because who knows what the biggest covert operation really is? However this one is supposed to be a true story and the characters in it are very real. Charlie Wilson is something right out of a Clancy novel. I've read about this one quite a bit and finally decided to pick it up, now that it's out in paperback.

    Second one was the book the movie Eragon is based on. Easy read....and very predicable. I was hoping this was the only book as I do find it somewhat of a yawner, but it's the first in an installment. Damn...this means I'll have to do more reading to get to the end of the yarn....

    Rich Dad, Poor Dad

    It's a book about two kids being raised by a rich dad and a poor dad. They want to learn how to become wealthy, and so ask the rich dad how to become millionares like he is. Through a series of lessons, the rich dad teaches the boys how to earn money and not be stuck working like 95% of us are.

    Lays a good foundation, but Kiyosaki is a notorious liar.

    I suggest this read.
