What Are You Reading?
I'm reading a fascinating book of history and politics, with a little bit of speculation thrown in. It's Helen Rappaport's The Race to Save the Romanovs. It's about the interconnected royal families in Europe, and the plots and plans to try to save the Russian Tsar and his family at the time of the Russian Revolution. I can tell you that the overall conclusion is that Nicholas and Alexandra did not want to leave their beloved country. I'll be giving away copies of this book, either this Friday or next.
And, I just finished a book that was a gift from a friend who knows how much I love Ireland. It's called The Feckin' Book of Everything Irish by Colin Murphy and Donal O'Dea. It has some crude humor, but also includes a glossary, words to Irish songs, and Irish recipes. It was fun.
