  • A Voyage Long and Strange: Rediscovering the New World by Tony Horwitz. Better than I expected, I hope to read more of his work in the future.

        • Paradise Lost, John Milton. Found out a couple of years ago that I'm a descendant of his brother. SO thought I'd give it a read when I got around to it. Everything on my shelf was finished last week so I picked up PL yesterday. Those who have read it tell me what you think, no spoilers though.
