It's Monday, What are You Reading? First in Peace

This is my third entry for this meme, suggested by Sheila@ One Persons Journey Through A World of Books.

After three mysteries in a row, I decided to go back to my Christmas Wish List gifts, and am reading a little non-fiction piece on George Washington by the late Conor Cruise O'Brien, also author of "The Long Affair," "First in Peace." Written just before his death, O"Brien, the international commentator and author, wanted to set the record straight on his feeling about George Washington versus Thomas Jefferson after some of the reaction to his position on Jefferson in "The Long Affair." The subtitle of this book: "How George Washington Set the Course for America" gives a pretty clear indication of the direction he is taking. It seems to fit well with my impressions after reading more than a dozen recent books on each Washington and Jefferson. I'll share more more in my review, in the coming weeks.

Happy Reading! ;-)

  1. Bill,

  2. Dr. Bill,
    My husband is reading The Real George Washington and is fascinated by the book. He will pass it to me when he's finished. I'm looking forward to reading it.
