Since this is the entertainment section of the forum... and I've a pretty fair library in town.
Just started on a Christmas present, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt by Edmund Morris. This, the first installment of his Teddy Trilogy, won Morris a Pulitzer. If the book is half as good as its Prologue - 1907, this will be a good read.
Recent Reads I'd recommend highly:
The Big Short - Inside the Doomsday Machine - Michael Lewis
Too Big to Fail - Andrew Ross Sorkin (soon to be an HBO movie)
They are two different perspectives on the financial crash. While you might expect an accounting lesson, both read more like "can't put it down" novels. Taken in combination you'll get a better understanding of the crash than you ever thought possible.
