The Murder of Roger Ackroyd - Hugh Fraser, Agatha Christie Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. - Ron Chernow, Grover Gardner Five Presidents: My Extraordinary Journey with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford - George Newbern, Lisa McCubbin, Clint Hill

What a strangely diverse group of books I have ended up with! But at least I found three titles; sometimes I find nothing in the sale pile. We start with what I know is going to be one of those deep tomes; at 35 hours long how can it be anything but--and it is Chernow so it will be well done. Then an Agatha Christie/Hercule Poirot story, which at least I know that even if it is a comparatively light read, it will be a well written and well crafted. And then there is the bit of fluff, which is what I am sure I will get when a retired Secret Service agent and his not quite ghost writer start dishing up on Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Carter.
