    Three hundred pages into this 800 page book. Chernow is an incredible storyteller. 
    Agree.  Loved this book (and Hamiton, too).  

    I'm almost done with the new Tiger Woods bio.  Uck.  You sort of feel sorry for him because his parents raised him to be a golf star, not a nice human being.  It's not a fun read, but it's interesting.

    If anyone is so inclined, my latest book came out on Feb 9th and has been connecting with audiences on a level I never expected. The characters do end up at a Pearl Jam show or two............
    It's available on Amazon in print and digital as well as Apple iBooks. Will be available at Barnes and Noble in a month or two. The artwork was done by Rockets are Red, my favorite gig poster artist out there. If anyone like Gaslight Anthem, he did many of their older posters.

    Bravo Dustin! :clap:
    Thank you!
    "All I Ever Knew" available now in print and digital formats at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iBooks.

    Jon Krakauer, Three Cups of Deceit.  A quick little read that shows beyond any doubt what a charlatan and quack Mortenson  turned out to be.  I know people who gave this guy a lot of money.  What a waste- very sad.

    I've read 10 of the 14 books in the Maisie Dobbs mystery series by Jacqueline Winspear, and I recommend this series. I'll read the other four soon enough. They drink a lot of tea in the series, and I started to drink tea. Affected by fiction.

    I bought The Picture of Dorian Gray today. Look forward to getting started. Always wanted to read it because of Bowie's Don't Look Back in Anger video.

    A beautiful used hardback copy of Itzkoff's biography of Williams came through the store last week and I thought about getting it for my own collection but was in a hurry and left it on the shelf.  Gone the next day, of course!  It looks great.

    I'm finally (good grief, FINALLY!) getting around to this great book:

    Read on my tablet on the plane.  Fluff, but I enjoyed it.

    I signed up for BookBub today.  Anyone use it?
    Im not a big e-reader fan but this service will let you know when the books are free or dirt cheap if you want to get them on whichever e-reader you use.
