I've been reading John Scalzi's blog for a while now, and even reading books he recommends, but I've put off reading his actual books, partly because I've read military sci fi done horribly wrong, and partly just because. But I got The Ghost Brigades from the library the last time I was there, and it's been sitting there taunting me ever since.
Last night, about 9, I started it. I finished it about 1:30. It's one of those. Now I have to go read everything else.
