I tried getting into John Admas, but never could, I did like the TV mini series they made and think I would enjoy the audio version that Kristin mentioned. Have a wonderful week!

I would like to try John Adams. That sounds good!

It's funny that you commented on The Professor & The Madman from my blog. You see, the other day I really felt like reading nonfiction, but I had no idea what to read! So, I thought about all my fellow book bloggers and remembered that you review nonfiction often. So, I got on your goodreads lists & saw that you rated The Professor quite well, and that's how I decided to read that one! Promise I don't make it a habit of stalking your shelves... but I knew we had similar tastes.

I look forward to picking The Professor up again to finish it soon.
