3 thoughts on “What Chicago Boyz Readers Are Reading (September 2016)”

  1. I buy mainly used books on Amazon through third-party vendors because they’re so cheap. Would it still help you if I went to your link?

    I’m surprised nobody’s reading the boys in the boat, about the 36 University of Washington crew team.

  2. Reading the following: Strategy; A History by Lawrence Freedman. However, I was shocked by ahuge error early in the book where the Battle of Cannae was listed almost two-hundred years after the battle was fought–poor editing indeed. I am also reading an excellent bi-monthly magazine I subscribe to–Ancient Warfare. Each issue is centered around a theme and the current issue’s theme is: Protecting the Borders: Wars at the edge of empires. Returning to books, I’m also currently reading Michael Savage’s Scorched Earth: Restoring the country after Obama.
