In response to michaelsjr's comment:
The bulk of my reading other than professional literature is Civil War History, but got these goodies for Christmas..
The Brothers by Stephen Kinzer
The Kid (Ted Williams) by Ben Bradlee, Jr
Tenth of December by George Saunders
Thank You For Your Service by David Finkel
Sycamore Row (Grisham)
Dr Sleep (Stephen King)
FYI - My Life (B Clinton) is good book as is HRC's autobio as is GWB's memoirs and surprisingly so is the autobio by Keith Richards and the bio of Mick Jagger
The "Killing.." books (Lincoln, Kennedy, Jesus) by O'Reilly are all quite good as well.
Someone said their take on Ted Williams bio was one of a sad or unhappy man...Have read several TW bios and about to read another and I agree...same for Cobb, Ruth, DiMaggio and especially Thorpe.
Happy New Year, everyone.
Liked that Saunders earlier books more than a little, haven't read the new one Tenth of December yet.
