In the last 36 hours, I've finished reading two books:

First, yesterday, was a library book called The Irregulars: Roald Dahl and the British Spy Ring in Wartime Washington, a book mostly about the attempts by the UK to get information and to supply propaganda to get the US to enter WWII on their side. I guess that you'd have to say that they failed, because it took a direct attack by the Japanese to get us into the war. I found a variety of interesting information in the book, but to me, it seemed to peter out, rather than come to a climax of some sort.

Second book was today, an ebook called Rum 1000 which I expected to be about the history of rum, but which turned out primarily to be a drink mix recipe book. Has its uses, but it wasn't what I was hoping for.
