It may just be horror porn, but I'm re-reading Stephen King's IT. SUPER excited about the movie remake coming out this fall.

Achilles in Vietnam by Jonathan Shay. Very insightful book that hit close to home. The insight into the Iliad was interesting, as it's something I've read a few times but never looked at it as an authentic account of combat. I just found it be quite accurate.

Fear, Ranulph Fiennes. Very interesting book but mostly (so far) seems like stories of what has scared him, what has scared other people he knows and what scares people he's read about. Not sure how (or if) he's going to tie it all together....
