Here we are, at goal (not that I will stop reading anytime soon...).

Lately, I finished reading The PMS Outlaws by Sharyn McCrumb; several small mysteries all in one package, as a protagonist from one of her series deals with the death of her husband. I've liked this series, written primarily about a forensic anthropologist, but this is a lesser book.

Then yesterday I finished Osprey Command #18: Dwight Eisenhower which is succinct in detailing primarily his time in command in WWII, with a bit about his earlier and later life. Pretty good information about WWII, certainly.

And now the work week.

If you have not yet read it, I would like to suggest Eric Schlosser's Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety. It interleaves the history of the development of both nuclear weapons in the U.S. and the procedures and policies around their use with an hour-by-hour description of an accident in 1980, where a dropped wrench in a Titan II silo led to a near-catastrophe. Riveting!

Sounds interesting. I'll add the name to the list/stack/pile/library...you get it...
