    Sherlock Holmes in America - a series of short stories. These, of course, are not from Arthur Conan Doyle, but are very good.

    The Years of Lyndon Johnson: The Path to Power by Robert Caro

    Picked this up at a yard sale for 25 cents. Did not expect much, but I'm hooked! and 3 more volumes to go.

    Great writer! Politics in the 20s and 30s. Doesn't seem like much has changed.

    NPR had a segment on this series during Morning Edition today... sounds interesting.
    Probably won't be able to find my copy for 25-cents though...

    THINKING, FAST AND SLOW By Daniel Kahneman

    It’s very good book that was written by a psychologist who won the Nobel Prize in economics. Go figure. It’s an excellent explanation of how the brain processes information, and reacts.

    Lonesome Dove. Good book, but I can't believe how many pages it takes to cover not really that much story-time.

    Cutting For Stone by Abraham Verghese. Best book I've read in a long time. Love, war,politics,religion, But mostly about what it means to be a doctor.
