    Right now I am on "Weimar Germany" by Eric Weitz. not quite a text book, but certainly not a novel. Very full of truth about Germany between the world wars. Violent conflicts between the extreme rights and lefts, ineffective central leadership and an informed populace distracted from politics by harsh economic conditions and new found personal freedoms to express hedonism

    It seemed like a good time to explore that period

    The Higdon Chronicles by Robert E. Higdon

    A compilation of some of Bob's best writing over the years. A very good read.

    Today I am reading The Japanese Corpse by Janwillem van de Wetering which is proving interesting so far.

    Weimar Germany sounds interesting too.

    Just finished" Beneath a Scarlet Sky" by Mark Sullivan. True story about a young hero in Italy during the last years of WWII. It's also an interesting historical perspective about the suffering by the many Italians that didn't support the Fascist government of Mussolini. Well written...one of those books you can't put down.

    Still reading Girl on a Train by Paula Hawkins and just started an odd little book called Call me Mrs Miracle.

    One of the best things about being at work is lots of time to read. 7 books in just over a week

    Why Meadow Died, the people and policies that created the Parkland shooter and endanger America's students, 2019, Pollack/Eden.

    Bring a box of Kleenex. Would like to say more but am too upset, to say more. One thing, however, Promise program.

    It's a really difficult read.

    I'm reading the BMW Repair Manual (CD) for our G310GS bikes. Interesting but not exciting.

    Switching between the original John Carter of Mars series by Edgar Rice Burroughs (OK, I'm actually re-reading it, or is it the 3rd time I've read it?) and Lights Out by Ted Koppel. So switching between SciFi/Fantasy and potential real life horror.
