Library Limbo

I love to read. I have since I was a kid. I almost always have a book with me, and read it when I have any spare time. I usually have a queue of good books to read waiting for me to finish whatever I am working on at the moment. I finished Lusitania last week, and had nothing queued up next. A friend unexpectedly sent me some books from Amazon for Christmas (Thanks John!) so I know I have some stuff to dig into in about a week. I also have bought some books for my older son, who is a voracious reader too. He loves John Keegan, so I bought a few of his works for under the tree. So I should have the first few months of 2006 covered. In the meantime I have nothing to read, and it is an odd feeling.

I’d like to dust off Smith’s Wealth of Nations again, but it is too much for a week, especially a busy week (my youngest’s birthday is this week, and I have a ton of stuff to do at work)… not to mention all that Holiday stuff. Any suggestions for some nice quick, thought-provoking reads? Regular readers of this site know that I prefer the History and Philosophy sections of the bookstore… though a nice biography or novel is not outside the realm of possibilty. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
