    I'm reading "10 days in a Mad House". Written by Nellie Bly who got herself committed to Blackwell Island's mental institution to try and better the conditions. So far, very good read!

    I saw a blurb about this and it looked interesting.

    I haven't read the latest one (Hardcore 24), but they are laugh out loud funny.

    I'm starting the newest James Lee Burke, "Robicheaux" today. It's a good day when there is a new James Lee Burke novel.

    I'm reading Joel Salatin's "Folks, This Ain't Normal".

    This guy should run for President!

    Was reading the last Sue Grafton book but interrupted it for the new book about the Trump White House....Fire and Fury.

    The abject stupidity of the White House can't make me put down a James Lee Burke book, Wolff's Fire and Fury is next tho.

    How is it so far?

    "Robicheaux" was excellent, I haven't come across a bad James Lee Burke book yet. I can't do the stupidity of the White House right now, so I started "Hidden Figures" by Margot Lee Shetterly.
