I'm loathe in principle to helping HBO for various reasons, but this gets an exception.

It's been a bit since the last book dump, so here's the latest (which is about a month old now) for anyone interested.
Party over here.
David Rockefeller, Memoirs
Zbigniew Brzezinski, The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives
Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in America : The Brutal Odyssey of an Outlaw Journalist
Milton Mayer, They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933-45
Greg Palast, Armed Madhouse: From Baghdad to New Orleans--Sordid Secrets and Strange Tales of a White House Gone Wild
I'm digging this HST selection, as it is a collection of his personal correspondence. Wicked good reading, providing a glimpse of the man that is very worthwhile. Brzezinski and Mayer are my main thrusts right now, and I'm picking up the Palast when lighter fare is needed.
Christ, I still need to get Glenn Greenwald's book ordered.....perhaps on the next purchasing round. I had planned to pick it up on pre-order but I need to finish this current round before I can stock up on more (that, and the fact that I really need to erect some proper bookshelves at this point).
Good stuff is happening, details to follow as things pans out over the next couple of weeks.
