Latest book "read"

I have been "reading" a book over this holiday weekend (well, actually listed to the audiobook) called One Second After by William R. Forstchen.  It is a story about 3 EMP's being detonated over strategically placed locations in the atmosphere, and the aftermath viewed from one small North Carolina town.  Though my more liberal friends might be turned off by the foreword written by Newt Gingrich, I thought the book was well written and thought provoking.  Scenes from the book reminded me of one of my favorite shows that is no longer on the air "Jericho" and its post-apocolyptic visions.

Nicole was listening to parts of it in the van and was enjoying it as well.  Interesting read if you have about $18 floating around (and, if listening to the audio version, 13 1/2 hours of your time).
