The Communist Manifesto

by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels

The most boring book ever written. Perhaps nothing in the world will roll your eyes back in your head faster than "The Communist Manifesto." Communism really didn't need to murder 10s of millions of people -- communists could have just killed them by making everybody read this book.

The Guns of Bull Run

by Joseph A. Altsheler

Good book, but beware of some historical fudging by the author. He speaks of Wheeling being in West Virginia before that part of the state seceded from Virginia, and of a young Confederate scout viewing the massive dome of the Capitol in Washington in June 1861 -- before the dome was completed. Still, a good read if you don't read too closely.
