SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

Book a Day #6: Book You'll Put Down for Wimbledon (Tour de France, etc.)

July Crisis: The World's Descent into War, Summer 1914 - Thomas Otte

The July Crisis: The World's Descent into War, Summer 1914, by Thomas Otte.  It's an ARC, and I need to review it soonish.  (It was out yesterday, I think.)  It's interesting.  But man, don't pick it up unless you're really interested in the subject! 


And yes, I actually am watching Wimbledon.  (I'll watch the Tour stage later; the tour stages are aired two or three times a day in the U.S.)
