Just finished Jewish Revolutionary Spirit. Definitely full of interesting history and facts. Maybe it’s just me, but I found the style it’s written in to be difficult to read. The format is chronological but each chapter/sub chapter is set about like some kind of case study of either a particular event or a specific person. There were so many names being tossed around (often with little to no significant introduction) with such frequency that it became difficult to follow or otherwise tedious at times. Overall a very informative book though.

Whenever I read Tolstoy or Russian novels with a huge cast of characters, I write out a list of them and their roles at the end of the book. Or a notebook. Hope that helps.
 
I'm reading What Are the Odds? by MyPillow guy Michael Lindell. It's an easy bedtime read. About his life as a crack addict and major f-up, to finding Christ and forming a successful company. Makes me feel better about my life, dude made so many horrendous decisions for decades, it's almost tough to believe somebody like that could find redemption. I usually read more challenging stuff so this is a nice break.

Currently reading 0 to 1 by Peter Theil. This is the guy who started PayPal and invested in Facebook in the super early days. Book is about how to get your company off the ground and making sure it's a company/investment worth looking at. I'm halfway through in 1 day and I'm locked in

I am polishing off an autographed copy of Going Rogue by Sarah Palin that a former coworker gifted to me.

I am also reading The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ by Anne Catherine Emmerich.
