Three new - or new to me, at least - books I just bought this past week, and one I've owned for a few months:
The Renaissance: A Short History
by Paul Johnson
Black Rednecks And White Liberals
by Thomas Sowell
The CEO Of The Sofa
by P.J. O'Rourke
And I'm still working through Victor Davis Hanson's masterful The Soul Of Battle. Highly recommended.
