Just finished Gilded Lives, Fatal Voyage, which focused on the first-class passengers of the Titanic. It was interesting, a quick and easy read, but didn't reveal much new information, and it had the same photographs that 90% of all the other Titanic books include. Books by the smaller publishers done by true researchers are definitely the way to go.

I was surprised at how many survivors later committed suicide.  :'(

Next up is Appointment in Samarra. Elin Hilderbrand has mentioned it in so many of her novels, I couldn't resist getting it.

 :)   Things are much safer now, though.

I'm envious again of you and your wife and your travels. Please do share photos again when you return. Hope you have a fantastic time.

Just finished Fortune's Children: The Fall of the House of Vanderbilt. Highly recommended; I couldn't put it down.
