'Killing Kennedy' by Bill O'Reilly.

If all history books were written like this, and 'Killing Lincoln,' students would like the subject a lot more.

Borrowed. For no reason other than to look smart in front of certain people.

I read Gardens of the Moon about a month ago. It was a struggle to motivate myself to continue reading it after getting halfway through. I'm glad I did as the latter half improved a lot, but overall the book was a far cry from the platitudes it has received, at least as a standalone book. If this is the worst of the series, however, I'm looking forward to the rest. Starting this tonight:

Got myself a Nook (e-ink) a few months back and am enjoying it.

Finished recently:

Age of Reason - Paine (Been too long since I read it last, such a great decapitation of revealed religion)

Glamorama - Bret Easton Ellis (Good after the first hundred repetitive pages or so)

Invisible Monsters - Palahniuk (Loved it)

Various Lovecraft/Howard short stories

Bad Religion - How we became a nation of heretics - Excellent read - "A piercing critique of heresy in a country where "traditional Christian teachings have been warped into justifications for solipsism and anti-intellectualism, jingoism and utopianism, selfishness and greed."

Next up, Sanderson's Mistborn and the Girl w/Dragon Tattoo series. Should tide me over, bring on the final book of the WoT!
