    I’m a big Preston and Child fan. Currently reading Crimson Shore, a Pendergast novel.

    Are those mysteries?

    Yes they are. Very well written, with well developed story lines. You don't have to start with the first in the Pendergast series, but it does help to explain some things along the way. The first two should be read in sequence, and there are three novels called the Helen trilogy, and they should be read in sequence as well. The first couple are not my favorites, but Lincoln and Child I would guess were getting their feet wet writing together.

    When pressed for specifics, the store reports the thief made off with three Fusion Proglide refills and two bottles of the store brand aftershave.

    Finished American Ulysses by Ronald C. White. Exceptional general biography on U.S. Grant.

    Now, on to American General: The Life and Times of William Tecumseh Sherman by John S.D. Eisenhower. Hoping to finish it in the next couple of days.


    Audiobook listening has been Leonardo da Vinci by Walter Isaacson. Wonderful so far.

    Thanks! I have been looking for new mystery writers to read.

    I am in the middle of Salt Lane by William Shaw, my first read of this author. A blend of police procedural and mystery with some personal dimensions and character background. So far, so good.

    Some of the Preston and Child books get a little into the supernatural, but they are good mystery books.

    Looks like we like the same kind of things.
    I have been trying to make it through 'James Madison" by Laura Bush. It's a good read, but I read in bed and fall asleep. Then I have to re read it. Meanwhile, I have been reading "A Texas look at Lyndon". Book about LBJ. Good read as well.

    Terrific, Aaron! I love history books and nonfiction in general. Not familiar with either of those books you're reading. Let me know how they are in the end!

    Has anyone read A People's History of the United states by Howard Zinn?
    I just picked up a copy today.
