  1. I read "me talk pretty 1 day". I did several books in 2014, funny, I can't recall them at the moment. Well one about the middle ages. Oh yea another was about Lisa Gherardini. She is Mona Lisa, and amazingly they know a lot about her family and life. Oh, "Mona Lisa, a life discovered" Dianne Hales. Oh, Leonardo never gave them the painting they paid for, he had it with him when he died, many years after painting it.

    1. I started keeping a list a few years back. Comes in handy for this, I guess. ; )

      Some good ones last year, especially the Robert Caro series (one to go yet, due out in a couple years) on LBJ.
