I've got Wool too, struggling to get through it.

At the moment reading Gordon R. Dickson's second book of Dragon Knight series. Not normally a huge fan of fantasy but this one is fun.

D-Day by Stephen Ambrose.

EXCELLENT read about the D-Day landings in Normandy. Full of first-person accounts, enemy and allied points of view, etc. He is an outstanding author. The book is 700+ pages long, but it's a very easy read. . .

The Dogs of War by Frederick Forsyth. Next up is One Year After by William Forstchen (let's hope Forstchen used an editor this time).

Just finished "In Harms Way", now killing time reading some Louis L'Amour. I've got 4 on my library hold list for my Kindle:

The Alienist
Collapse
City of Endless Nights - next in the Prendergast Series
Deep Freeze - next in Sanford's Virgil Flowers
series

A favorite from a bit ago: Killers of the Flower Moon, what an American tragedy, a very good read.

Just finished Artemis by Andy Weir. I figured it would be tough to equal his book The Martian and, while Artemisstarted strong, IMO, it ran out of gas and was tough to finish.

I also just read Mayflower by Nathaniel Philbrick and thought it was excellent.

I'm just about to leave for vacation and picked up Xenophon's Cyrus the Great: The Arts of Leadership and War which was recommended by Ryan Holiday.

Oh, good. I picked that one up at a Goodwill store, and it's on my "need to read" list (along with about 30 other books).
