Just finished "Tempest at Dawn" by James Best.  Was a very interesting historic novel about the Constitutional Convention.  Never realized how much sway over the whole thing George Washington had.

Quote
The United States is on the brink of total collapse. The military has been reduced to near extinction, economic turmoil saps hope, and anarchy threatens as world powers hover like vultures, eager to devour the remains. In a desperate move, a few powerful men call a secret meeting to plot the overthrow of the government. Fifty-five men came to Philadelphia in May of 1787 with a congressional charter to revise the Articles of Confederation. Instead they founded the longest lasting republic in world history. "Tempest at Dawn" tells their story.

Just finished a book called "Speed Dating with the Dead" by Scott Nicholson
Don't read too many books of the horror/ghost genre, but I found this one a lot of fun.  Found myself smiling as I read it.  Only negative thing I can say is it finished too fast.

Quote
A paranormal conference at the most haunted hotel in the Southern Appalachian mountains . . .

a man’s promise to his late wife that he’d summon her spirit . . .

a daughter whose imagination goes to dark places . . .

and demonic evil lurking in the remote hotel’s basement, just waiting to be awoken.

When Digger Wilson brings his paranormal team Spirit Seekers International to the White Horse Inn, he is skeptical that his dead wife will keep her half of the bargain. He doesn’t believe in ghosts. But when one of the conference guests channels a mysterious presence and an Ouija board spells out a pet phrase known only to Digger and his wife, his convictions are challenged.

And when people start to disappear, Digger and his daughter Kendra must face the circle of demons that view the hotel as their personal playground. Because soon the inn will be closing for good, angels can’t be trusted, and demons don’t like to play alone

I purchased the digital version of The Martian last week, when it was $2. I'm going to start reading it this week sometime

While desperately awaiting George R. R. Martin completing The Winds of Winter, I listen to the occasional audio book on my drive to/from work. My last one was The Martian and it was fantastic. I'm looking for something new. I've heard good things about another recent book by the author of The Martian and may give that a shot.
