Terrific books I've read recently that kept me up far too late:
The Eighty Dollar Champion by Elizabeth Letts. A horse headed for the slaughterhouse is purchased by Harry de Leyer and the rest is magic. A wonderful true story about a Cinderella horse, to put a cliche on it.
Killing Jesus by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard. The story of how and why Jesus was killed. Lots of research here which puts the whole story into historical perspective. This is a history book, not a religious book, and by the end I had a better understanding of the man known as Jesus and the political forces that demanded his execution. This book is every bit as readable and educational as the authors’ Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy.
