gogtrial34987: Oh nice! I originally read a Dutch translation of that, way back when, and then spent a lot of effort tracking down an English copy of it (plus its two sequels). Good to see it more easily accessibly like this (though I'll happily prefer picking up my dead tree copies when the fancy strikes to reread them again). :)
I would prefer an actual book, too, because I don't like reading longer texts at the computer.
I only learned of the Deathworld books through Solus as on one island there are several books hidden among the debris of the destroyed spaceship.

Augustus Richard Norton, Hezbollah: A short history

Relatively short book (about 200 pages in the updated 2014 edition, with fairly large print) about the Lebanese Shia militant group. Quite interesting, doesn't ignore Hezbollah's violence, but treats it not just as a terror group, but also as a political force and deals with the social and cultural background (e.g. it includes an interesting description of festivities during Ashura, a central event in the Shia religious calendar). Recommended if you're interested in Mideast politics.
Fall of Damnos by Nick Kyme, a WH40K novel. Pretty...average.
