Ed you should get you a tablet and join amazon kindle unlimited. Its like $10 a month and you can check out up to 10 books at a time. They have thousands and thousands of books to read. I typically read 4 or more books a month. Plus they have specials and good deals on books that are not part of the subscription as well.
Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

I just finished "The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire".  I recently read "The Peloponnesian Wars" and "Masters of Command".  Not long ago read "Elementary Gunsmithing-A Manual of Instruction for Amateurs in the Alteration and Repair of Firearms" and re-read "The Art of War".  Currently reading Clausewitz "On War" and Marine Corps "Winter Survival Course Handbook"... winter is coming.  I used to read a lot more.  I spend much of time reading reports and test plans.
