about 6 chapters into One Shot. Reacher bossing it figuring out the criminals motives. Favorite part so far is him kicking 3 dudes asses while barely breaking a sweat, right after owning the girl they were with.

The finale of The Wheel of Time(A Memory of Light) was amazing.

Love reading the Dresden Files. Waiting for the most recent novel to get to my library. I recommend those highly to anyone who will listen. I also thought The Codex Alera series was pretty badass. A new mythology type of tale with a good fantasy story. The "undiscovered hero" part of the plot throughout the book has been done before, but I liked the way Butcher wrote the books and how he fleshed out all the characters, good and bad.

Another good series if you like both WW2 stories and fantasy fiction would be The Destroyermen series by Taylor Anderson. It takes the crew of an old WW1 destroyer (fighting in the Pacific Theater of WW2)that gets caught in a storm that transports them to an alternate Earth, where they get involved in the politics and wars of the "people" living there.

Numbers turn me on...So I just loaded my brand new nook up with the freakonomics books, and some other lesser known statistical and numbers based books.

Currently reading "Numbers Rule Your World" and its incredibly interesting....if that's what you're into, at least

Loved Codex Alera. It was just well-written and well-characterized. Really excellent work.

Not a fan of modern alt history/war fiction. TBH, even steampunk irritates me, although I've been working my way though the Clockwork Angel series and getting somewhat into it, mainly for lack of anything else I'm motivated to read.

I'm not a big fan of history/war fiction myself, but Destroyermen is a pretty good series on its own. Is the Clockwork Angel series the one written by Alan Campbell? Or am I thinking of something else?

If you are looking for something else to be motivated to read, have you ever read the Hollows series by Kim Harrison? There are some similiarities to the Dresden Files, especially considering the main character is a witch who becomes a PI. There are a lot of great character dynamics in it, and honestly the main character, Rachel Morgan, sometimes makes me think Harry Dresden has gotten off easy in his life sometimes. That may sound like a bold assertion, but wait until you check out her books.

I love the Codex Alera. I pass them around to a lot of different people, and so far, every single person has enjoyed them, but for different reasons/characters. It even has decent political intrigue for a fantasy book. Also, it helps that the series is finished and only 6 books that all go pretty quick.
