    I loved that one!

    I'm reading Gone Tomorrow by Lee Childs. It's a Jack Reacher novel, light entertainment and a fast read.

    An older personal finance book - Millionaire Women Next Door. I am finding it interesting - especially the chapter about how particular types of parenting enable daughters to have "successful" lives.

    Now reading “The Crowded Hour” by Olay Risen. About Theodore Roosevelt organizing and leading the Rough Riders at the start of what some call “the American Century”.

    I just finished, "Mornings on Horseback" by David McCullough. The timeline runs from Roosevelt's early family life, his days spent out west, his beginnings in politics, and pretty much ends right before the Rough Riders. It won the National Book Award some time ago. What an interesting upbringing and family. Raised by a wealthy philanthropist and basically home schooled until Harvard. I bookmarked your book for another day.

    Looking for recommendations: Just finished the Netflix/AMC series "Turn" about General Washington's spies. It was great! We finished it last night. I highly recommend it, especially to history buffs. It's not entirely accurate--you need to research where they took poetic license, but it really provided great information and color to that aspect of the revolution.

    It makes me want to read another book about the revolution. I read McCullough's 1776 and LOVED it. So, any suggestions?
