I read Dead Wake and hate to say I enjoyed it due to the subject but I was eager to pick it back up when I had to put it down.  It's about the Lusitania. 

Now I'm reading What Alice Forgot and so far I really like it.

Salt to the Sea.  Best book I've read in a long, long time.

I've been reading paranormal stuff lately.  The latest was Dark Rites by Heather Graham.  it is the latest in her FBI Krewe of Hunters series.  It is pretty good.  I finished it in one day.  I also read Julie Garwood's latest police procedural  "Wired" which is an FBI set as well, but with a different spin.  It was also a winner.

I read something more profound recently, and though "i need to put that on ssh" but i'll be if I can remember what it was!

Have you read Burial Rites by Hannah Kent?  Based on a true story.   Sooooo good.

no.  i'll have to put that on hold tomorrow. 

i was farther behind on heather graham than i thought.  right after dark rites, i got wicked deeds.  it is the same fbi paranormal suspense as the others, but this one focuses on edgar allen poe.  it was pretty good!

i am not reading back, but i think the one i wanted you to read was "chickens in the road".  it is a biography and i'll have to get the author's name tomorrow at work. it is pretty good.

I'll see if my library has it.  Author Suzanne McMinn.

I used to read Poe all the time.  Have you read Mrs. Poe?  I enjoyed it.

well that stinks.  There is another one, I can't remember the name, but I will find out next weekend.  Maybe they'll have it.
