William Shakespeare's The Jedi Doth Return

Aka, Return of the Jedi converted to Shakespearean pentameter.  I wanted to get the entire OT, but alas I was allowed one, so I went with my favorite.

Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel. I've already read another one of her books, A Place of Greater Safety, and since it was so amazing I decided to pick up this one.

Just finished The Honourable Schoolboy. Very interesting setting and enjoyable characters, but with an ending nowhere near as satisfying as TTSS.

Finished up Alan Lichtman's 13 Keys to the White House two weeks ago.

Been reading Decision Points by George W. Bush and Killing England by Bill O'Reilly since Summer 2017. I'm almost finished those.

Also, The Prosecution of George W. Bush For Murder since February simultaneously. I will also be reading a book on housing policy once I return to school this semester.

Just finished reading Real Education by Charles Murray and am working on Human Accomplishment.  Plan to read some fiction after this, though I'm not sure what yet.

As part of my extensive research for Dynasties and Empires I'm finishing Francis Hackett's Francis the First and I'm on a highly enjoyable re-read of Stefan Zweig's Magellan, easily one of the best books I've ever had the pleasure to read.
