Just finished “Bobby Kennedy” by Chris Matthews. As a child of the ‘60s, I thought I knew all there was about the Civil Rights Movement and the continued assassinations, including Bobby Kennedy. I heard him speak in Indianapolis when I was a senior in high school.

This book adds a whole new perspective to this period and caused me to re-think that whole tumultuous decade and allowed me to consider input from people who I’d never heard quoted before.

Recently finished The World In My Eyes by Richard Blade. Great autobiography of the life of the popular DJ who grew up in England & came to the USA& brought us all the great music of The Second British Invasion. If you love the club music of the 1980's & want a trip down your college big hair days ( and even the days of the underground movement before that), this book is for you. Catch Richard Blade on XM Radio First Wave (channel 33).

Reading "To Marry an English Lord" by Gail MacColl and Carol Wallace. It's a non-fiction book about the American 'dollar princesses' who came over to marry English aristocrats in the late 1800s/early 1900s. Winston Churchill's mother was one of those. I had no idea his mom was an American. It's how Edith Wharton got inspired for "The Buccaneers."

Has anyone read The Book Thief? I have a copy, but the pictures in it have really turned me off. I'm not sure if it's worth the read or not. Suggestions?

I am currently reading The Paris of Appalachia: Pittsburgh in the Twenty-First Century by Brian O'Neill. It's a great book on looking past what people think Pittsburgh is. Here's a great quote: "This isn't so much a history of Pittsburgh as it is a biography. Sometimes we're so afraid of what others think, we're afraid to declare who we are. This city is not midwestern. It's not East Coast. It's just Pittsburgh, and there's no place like it. That's both its blessing and its curse."

It helps that I'm a fan of Brian O'Neill & his style of writing, too.

Yes, we and yinz are part of Appalachia by Brian O'Neill.

After reading "To Marry and English Lord," I'm rereading "The Buccaneers" by Edith Wharton. I love my local library!
