Finished up Alan Lichtman's 13 Keys to the White House two weeks ago.

Been reading Decision Points by George W. Bush and Killing England by Bill O'Reilly since Summer 2017. I'm almost finished those.

Also, The Prosecution of George W. Bush For Murder since February simultaneously. I will also be reading a book on housing policy once I return to school this semester.

Just finished reading Real Education by Charles Murray and am working on Human Accomplishment.  Plan to read some fiction after this, though I'm not sure what yet.

As part of my extensive research for Dynasties and Empires I'm finishing Francis Hackett's Francis the First and I'm on a highly enjoyable re-read of Stefan Zweig's Magellan, easily one of the best books I've ever had the pleasure to read.

I just recently started a reread of Russian literature marathon. I started Crime and Punishment yesterday, and plan to reread Anna Karenina, The Brothers Karamazov, and War and Peace in that order. Among my favorite books, especially Crime and Punishment and War and Peace.

Dr. Zhivago, Boris Pasternak
Kim, Rudyard Kipling
The Russian Revolution, Sheila Fitzpatrick

There are other non-fiction books lying around my bed that Iíve started but are essentially on pause.

I just recently started a reread of Russian literature marathon. I started Crime and Punishment yesterday, and plan to reread Anna Karenina, The Brothers Karamazov, and War and Peace in that order. Among my favorite books, especially Crime and Punishment and War and Peace.

Iíve been meaning to break into some Dostoevsky and Tolstoy, but figured the twentieth century would be an easier entry into Russian literature. This summer I read The Master & Margarita.

I hope you have better luck than I did. I loved Man of La Mancha, but when I tried to read Don Quixote, I got about as far as you did before giving up!

At the moment I'm reading Valperga: The Life and Adventures of Castruccio, Prince of Lucca, which is Mary Shelley's take on the life of that medieval Italian politician that Machiavelli so loved. I'm reading it mostly for my love of Mary Shelley.

Before that, I read My Dear Hamilton, which I definitely recommend to anyone interested in learning more about Eliza Schuyler Hamilton or the revolution and American founding from a female perspective.

Strawberry Shortcake Murder

Not high art, but a little Columbo mixed with a recipe book isn't that bad of a time-passer.

I'm now more than 2/3 of the way through! I'm actually enjoying it a lot.
