    Just finished Jerry Crasnick's "License to Deal" and before that was Thomas Pynchon's "The Crying of Lot 49," which I am most certainly going to have to read again to better understand what was going on.
    How do you like 1776?
    I'm reading "John Adams" and asked for "1776" for Christmas.

    I thought 1776 was very good. Showed how razor sharp the line between success and failure really was during that year, and it humanized Washington in a way that our history lessons never did.

    I just finished Golden Ocean by Patrick O'Brian. That's finally it, the last of his seafaring novels for me, twenty in the Aubrey-Maturin series and those few he wrote prior to that. Now I'm reading other authors from the same genre- historical novels of the Age of Sail. Alexander Kent's Bolitho series this week, maybe Hornblower next week. It's hard to find anything as good as O'Brian, though.

    1776 by David McCullough. So far so good. Looks like a lot good insights to the times in 1776.
    I just finished "Luckiest Man" by Jonathan Eig. Highly recommended book! I enjoyed it very much with great details about Gehrig's illness.
