I just finished No Easy Day about one of the navy seals who was on the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden.  Quick read and pretty interesting although I'm sure there was a lot that was left out for security reasons.

About 10 chapters in to Canada which is fiction about a family that robs a bank and has to flee the country.  Definitely a slower read but I really like the author's style. 

Santa brought me a Kindle this year for Christmas.  I was a long time nay-sayer about e-readers but I have to admit that this thing is the shit!

"Candy Girl: A Year in the Life of a Stripper, Diablo Cody"

Good read!

I'm hooked on the Prey series and the Flowers series by John Sandford. It's neat to be able to picture the locations around town where allot of the stories take place.

Kindle plus library e-books is a fantastic combo.

Just finished In Cold Blood by Truman Capote - whatever you thought of Truman, the dude could write!

The Lock Artist by Steve Hamilton.  A lot of his books are set in the UP.

Been reading the Doc Ford series by Randy Wayne White, and the John Rain books by Barry Eisler.

For non-fiction two of my favorite authors are John McPhee and Bill Bryson - you can't go wrong with any of their stuff.

In Cold Blood is truly one of my all time favorite books.  Amazing how TC left no stone unturned in telling the story.  Every aspect of the crime and the community around the people involved was thoroughly covered.

BTW, not a good book to read through the night though.  Some parts leave you listening to the wind and looking out your windows.
