excellent -- the best book on typography I've ever read. I particulary enjoyed his bracing attitude about the hyphen.
BETRAYING OUR TROOPS by Dina Rasor

The mind boggles at how cost-inefficient and wasteful the war in Iraq has been. Yet the money wasted in Iraq will not be wasted if Iraq eventually becomes a stable government acceptable to American interests.

Next time,though, let's not spend the money on contractors. Let's insource all these functions back to the government.
THE GREAT WALDO SEARCH

lost somewhere in Parker's room ... I'm on renew #78...
I've only read the first couple of chapters so far. I'm hoping it gets better. The theme of the opening of the book is that this psychologist, a nine-year Navy veteran, is surprised and upset she is sent to Iraq. Why do people join the military if they don't realize it's for real?
REAPER MAN by Terry Pratchett

One of the very best Pratchetts. My favorite moments? when Bill Door reacts with rage to the idea that the new death wants to wear a crown; and, of course, when Azrael says YES.
