    What?
    None, currently. Makes me sad.

    Very seriously need to start reading more.

    Need to find time to read more.

    That one's on my list. Aside from the Middletown connection, my great-grandparents moved up from Tennessee, and at least half of my relatives worked at Armco/AK. It was recommended to me by my second cousin, same background, who's now the dean of pharmacy at a northern college.

    As I was reading it you were one of the people I was thinking I needed to recommend it to. Though I didn't know the direct TN/Armco connection, I figured you'd have enough familiarity with things he referred to to enjoy the book. :)

    I've got three books on hand from which to choose.

    The Jungle Books by Rudyard Kipling, Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden, and The Brass Ring by Bill Mauldin.

    Bill Mauldin - Wikipedia

    I read two of Mauldin's books, one based on his experiences as a grunt soldier during WWII, the second about his experiences and struggles back home after WWII. Both are eye-openers, well worth reading. My comments are posted in this thread.

    I just downloaded "Ernie Pyle in England" for $.99, written in 1941 at the buildup to the German Blitzkieg and the Battle of Britain.

    Currently about 1/4 the way through Shogun. Never really been exposed to it (there was a mini-series made when I was a kid, the book is from before I was born), but it is pretty captivating.

    Finished the Queen's Poisoner (Jeff Wheeler), started in on the sequel, The Thief's Daughter. Bouncing between that and Trigger Warning (Neil Gaiman.)

    I haven't read any of James Clavell's novels, but King Rat sounds interesting.
