Sorry for the long-winded title. Just curious what non-Civil War related books folks are reading or have read lately? For me it would be Sir Ernest Shackleton's South, his account of his aborted Antarctic expedition stuck in the floes in 1914- 16. An heroic story, how he lost his ship crushed in the ice and saved his crew through great daring, courage, and sheer force of will. This is one not to be read in the wintertime unless you have a nice roaring fire close by. I also recently picked up a few Faulkner novels I hadn't read before, The Unvanquished I read in May, looking forward to reading Sanctuary & Go Down Moses this summer.
