G is currently reading a book on Daniel Boone which he says is overdone. When he is through with this one, he wants to look for a gangster book-Machine Gun Kelly or Bugsy Moran. He always scoffs my history book club flyers from the mailbox and reads through all the listings before letting me know that they came in the mail. Some books that he really enjoyed in his western collection recently (he is always up for western history) are Kansas Charley, Doc Holliday, and Billy the Kid.
As for me, I'm always reading something fluffy when I don't have to read for work. So right now I'm reading a vampire romance by Amanda Ashley (who is really Madeline Baker), plus I'm still reading The Undercover Economist (which I use to teach AP microeconomics with-great supplementary book) and I've got to finish The Last Days of Europe (about the changing demographics in France and Great Britain and the changes in world power) and The River of Lost Footsteps (story of Burma).
I actually have to start reading Gilgamesh and Beowulf for a class that starts mid-April; the class is called The Other Side of History and is about myths, legends, etc. We also have a summer reading list for students now, and I have to read (again) Home Before Morning in order to write the questions to go with it. I read it during the summer as a teenager, so it's perfect for my students-very moving true story about a nurse in the US army during the Vietnamese war.
