Fast, entertaining books aren't they. I think I've read all of his "killing" books. Good books even though he's a boor.

I've just started "Revolutionary Summer: The Birth of American Independence" - Joseph J. Ellis

History buff.

Best book I've read in awhile was Empire of the Summer Moon: Quanah Parker and the Rise and Fall of the Comanches, the Most Powerful Indian Tribe in American History, by S.C. Gwynne. I'm in the middle of two books now, The Alice B. Toklas Cookbook, and Steinbeck's The Log From the Sea of Cortez (for the third time). Next up is Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future, by Ashlee Vance.
