Wrapping up smileys people and purchased

1453: The Holy War For Constantinople and the Clash of Islam and the West
300

Considering

A History of Venice (700+ pages!)
475

or

City of Fortune: How Venice Ruled the Seas
451

and

Adventures on the Wine Route: A Wine Buyer's Tour of France
300

as my next books. After giving up on The Thirty Years War, I'm really nervous about taking on another massive book so I'm leaning toward City of Fortune. Adventures on the Wine Route is supposed to be very good.

"Beginning with My Streets" by Czeslaw Milosz.

Also have "The Art of Fielding" sort of going. Really both of those are kind of going.

Anna Karenina has been taking me quite a while. Probably because its on a kindle and thus I have no idea how large of a book it is other than the fact that I have been reading it for quite a while and am not yet at the 50% mark.

After that I am probably going to have to see what is available for free for Prime members since I haven't availed myself of my monthly free book loan in a while.

A lot different than the last novel I read (Tropic of Cancer), but very enjoyable.

I am currently reading Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life. I also have Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs biography. I  have a book on the history of the Samurai. The book is simply called Samurai.

I have another called 100 Things You Are Not Suppose To Know. It is an interesting little book I picked up at Barnes and Noble. I have but forgot to bring with me is a book called Krav Maga.

I like the theme that you are developing. Have you considered reading this next?

Don't get some of the hate it has received. Although a very long book, it has held my interest so far and is proving to be an interesting story. (about 750 pages deep)

What do you mean? I usually pick my books by browsing "100 books to read before you die" lists and they rarely produce duds. Thanks, looks right up my alley.

Not very far in, but I'm finding it kind of sexist and boring.
