George RR Martin A Game of Thrones, Clash of Kings etc...
Terry Brooks Shannara series( the first three for me)
Jack Whyte Uther started it for me
I read LOTR once a year for the past 20+ years, can't get enough
I say go for it, great gun plus .45acp is one of my favorites. I love my glocks, have four of them, but for myself when it comes to a SD, my edc is a S&W M&P J frame in .357 and in house a S&W 627(8 shot) also in .357.
