Just read a few snippets from The Celts by Gerhard Herm.

Nordic "Atlantians" and other protohistoric-european-superpowers, 700 year carbon dating errors, and theories on the Ur (the "original" people) from which descended all Indo-Europeans. (those are the not-so-Celtic chapters)

A wee bit farcical at times but an interesting read.

Aaah that sounds good.  I'd like to read that I think.  

Unlike usually, I'm not actually reading anything at the moment, focusing instead on modding and flitting between new, and therefore crap White Dwarfs.

"Collapse" by Jared Diamond. I've only read three chapters and I've already stopped at least 3 times reading to reflect on what the book made me think about. I highly recommend it. Basically, as the title reads, it's the attempt to explain the collapse of societies and cultures.

Too bad I haven't been able to advance much, there quite a bit to do in San Francisco (besides of learning to use PS3 controllers)

Oh, I've got something, Temeraire (or His Majesty's Dragon for you American folks)  Combines Napoleonic warfare, with Dragons.  Excellent read, they are so good.

@Jubal

Yer sure, it's not a very good copy though, poor formating. It's also got 'the book of five rings' in it which is also about military strategy but was written by a samurai
