Post Re: What are you reading these days?
I just finished "Virginia Dynasty" by Lynne Cheney (Yes, Dick Cheney's wife). An interesting overview of four very influential men, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe; four of our first five presidents (and yes, John Adams is not overlooked). All four were from Virginia, and worked together (sometimes).
Currently looking for something different, though I am also "reading" (audiobook), "The Holy Roman Empire" by Captivating History (Yes, that is how the 'author' is listed). I have always been curious about this period in European history; all I really knew before was that Charlemagne was the first to bear the title, and that one of my high school history teachers described it as follows: "It wasn't holy, it wasn't Roman, and it certainly wasn't an empire."

Addendum to my previous post: Have started reading John Grisham's "The Whistler."

Post Re: What are you reading these days?
When Grisham writes about legal subjects (here, judicial corruption), which he knows well, he produces a good readable story. I have not gone far enough into the book to give any kind of critical review, except to say I will continue reading it.

Hope this answers your question.
