    Question What was the last non SW book you read?

    I am just curious, as I always like to get to know everyone here better. I think this gives you a little insight on your fellow posters.

    So, what was the last non-Star Wars book that you read?

    Mine was:

    Bias by Bernard Goldberg.

    He is a former CBS news correspondant who talks about how there is a liberal slant to the news in America. Very interesting read. It gets a little redundant in some places, but some of the things I found shocking.
    "Roger Nasty Butler!"

    I just started Underboss, the story of Sammy the Bull Gravano. Other than the AOTC novelization, this is the first book I'll read for pleasure in quite a while. I'm usually trying to read some more "academic" texts but I must admit to being a little behind.

    Last completed SW book (as of 5/3): Rebel Dream by Aaron Alliston (sp?)
    Total of all books read (as of 5/3): 332
