At this moment I am re-reading Heretics of Dune, which I read for the first time in 1985.

It is the fifth novel in the series of six.

METROPOLIS : A History of the City, by Ben Wilson.

Great read that goes back to the first city Uruk, about 5000BC and explains why cities developed. I'm almost finished  and it has kept my interest.

The development of modern cities like Manchester, Chicago and New York is especially memorable. Non-fiction and highly recommended.

Sounds fascinating. I'll look into this one.

In a similar vein, Gore Vidal's novel Creation is about the rivalry between ancient Green and Persia from the Persian point of view.  It's a great read.

I'm reading The Museum of Extraordinary Things. It's not flowing, but I'm not far in. I'm afraid that I have the modern affliction of short attention span caused by smart phones.

I am re-reading two different books that I find are actually quite related in what turns out to be both shocking, yet actually not unexpected, ways. They are "Kaigun - Strategy, Tactics and Technology in the Imperial Japanese Navy 1887 -1941" by David Evans and Mark Peattie and "Amelia Earhart - The Truth at Last" (2nd edition) by Mike Campbell.

That's certainly thick enough to be considered a book Bob.
