I usually have a few books going at once. At work, I've got a stack that I pick around and sample from time to time. I just finished Destiny of the Republic by Candice Millard, the back scenes of how James Garfield became President, the relentless stalking of his deranged assassin Charles J. Guiteau and 10 plus doctors that actually brought him to his death some 2 1/2 months later. It was a very interesting historical read. Here's a close and personal friend of mine, in a quiet spot, with a new book that recently reached his desk. It's another Hesse novel with over 50 black and white photographs that certainly assist you turning the pages. Pick it up at your local seller today. Recommended by Birdman the bookman!
