Sometimes I think people wonder how it is I end up collecting so many interests (and indirectly, so many books). A recent example might give a hint of my dilemma.
At Chason du Depart, OldAFSarge has been writing a very gripping series on D-Day and the Allied invasion of Europe. (Really. He is an excellent writer. You should go over there and catch up on the latest entry. I can wait....Done? Great. We will carry on.). Reading his series renewed a very old interest I had in World War II - 40 years ago or more.
As I was thinking about this, suddenly I remembered that I saw (in my local used book store) a book by Heinz Guderian called Achtung - Panzer, which is a discussion of the development of the tank as a weapon of war and the proposed use of it in war (Guderian was the architect of the invasion of France in 1940). So I decide I need to read that (review here).
Reading this, I am suddenly reminded of another book I have on Erwin Rommel and his career: Rommel: Leadership Lessons from The Desert Fox. It has been a while since I read this, so I pick this up again (worth your time, if so inclined).
But wait! Both Guderian and Rommel have addition works: Panzer Leader by Guderian and Infantry Attacks by Rommel. So both of these are now added to the used book list, to be ordered and read at a future date.
So I am sure you can appreciate my sad situation: from a set of blog entries, I have become compelled to purchase three books for additional research and review (or, just because I am interested).
On the whole, I think this just proves I was actually Wikipedia before Wikipedia was a thing...
