I read The Devil in the White City ages ago and found at first that it was the gruesome murder mystery portion that kept me involved, but by the end, it was the story of the architects of the World Fair that I enjoyed the most and stayed with me. I live in Chicago, and they do a tour now based on that book - pretty cool.

Post Re: What are you currently reading?
I just saw a similar post to this and answered, and now I just saw this one, so I'll paste in the same answer. :)

I'm reading a few books at the moment! One of them is READ THIS NEXT: And Discover Your 500 New Favourite Books by Sandra Newman, which is basically an excuse for me to say 'Well, I read somewhere that such and such is an amazing book and I simple had to buy it!' I'm always looking for new things to read, and rather than just browsing Amazon.com as I so often do, I thought I'd see what comes recommended from this book!

Then again, I do take notice of other recommendations, too! My best friend recommended that I read Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts, which is based on the author's life. He'd been imprisoned for 19 years, and it's the story of his when he went to Bombay after escaping, in broad daylight, from a maximum security prison! Doesn't that just grip you and make you want to read more? I love it when a book does that to me!

Also, because I'm an avid sewer and want to open up my own online craft store on Etsy, I am reading (almost finished!) Etsy Success - How To Make a Full-Time Income Selling Jewelry, Crafts, and Other Handmade Items Online by Kathleen Donovan, which is basically my way of building up my confidence and make sure I understand everything before I jump in and open the shop.

And lastly I'm reading Women of the Suffrage Movement by Lydia Bjornlund, because I find the whole fight for the equality of women and right to vote a fascinating subject and wanted to get a better insight into it! This particular book is focused on the American Women's Suffrage Movement, though I'm also very interested in the British movement, so if anyone knows any good books on the subject, please let me know!

Bookworm, Shantaram is an amazing story. I thoroughly enjoyed that book.

I'm currently reading Lost Memory of Skin, our Fiction book selection for Jan., and just finished My Heart Laid BAre by Joyce Carol Oates.

Just finished, A Magnificent Catastrophe by Edward J. Larson, - and just picked up Agincourt by Bernard Cornwell - something tells me I'm really going to enjoy it!

just finished "The Autobiography MILES DAVIS with Quincy Troupe" which i thoroughly enjoyed and found very easy to read and keep on reading as the tone is so conversational. i could easily have read it in one sitting if it wasn't for pesky work.

have since been trying to get through "Randy Bachman's Vinyl Tap Stories" which is harder to keep at even though i am quite a fan of Randy's guitar playing from back in the day.

so many books so little time ...

Les Miserables. So far it's been a more enjoyable read than I expected it to be... though I've wanted to read it ever since hearing it mentioned on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. It's a very large book and I have 1000 pages to go. Hopefully the drama will keep up.

Post Re: What are you currently reading?
I'm currently reading the Song Of The Mermaid by a new author called Melissa Davies. I bought it off amazon on kindle at a bargain basement price , under £1. So far i'm really enjoying it! very suspenseful. I found it by happenstance while flicking through my local newspaper as the author and the book were mentioned in it. It is set in Cornwall and although set in the present, it deals with a very old mystery.Highly recommended if that's your cup of tea.
