I am about 20% (neat kindle feature) done with American Gods. I forgot how much I enjoyed this book. While I dont have a favorite book per-say, It is in my top 3-5.

I tried reading The Vegetarian, but I think I need alcohol to get me through it. I'm reading After Dark by Haruki Murakami, but I just started and it's great so far. Other than that, I don't have much to comment on.

Pretty much just read historical biographies on John Tyler, William Henry Harrison, Martin Van Buren, and Andrew Jackson. Currently reading about James Polk.

Did work in a work of fiction called The Raw Shark Texts. Kinda love it. It's this pretty meta-mystery novel that turns into the film Jaws, but with a "conceptual shark." Hard to explain, but I enjoyed it a lot. Dialogue is iffy, but otherwise solid.

Currently reading:

One Long Night: A Global History of Concentration Camps


The Impeachers (about the impeachment of Andrew Johnson)
