Just finished "John Adams" by David McCullough. A really fascinating life and I highly recommend it.
Also just finished "2182 kHz" by David Masiel on a recommendation from a publishing friend. A very interesting book and I predict big things for it. Its about modern day adventures on the Alaskan seas. If you liked "A Perfect Storm", you'll like this book.
Just starting "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay" by Michael Chabon.
Pay attention to the open sky
