A historical mystery set in 1431 England, featuring a nun as the detective. Not bad

A juvenile book looking at Japanese diplomat Chiune Siguhara, who, while posted in Lithuania, handwrote 6,000 visas to enable Jews to escape the Nazis. A great read!

Slave in a Box by M.M. Manring, 210 pages

This book was mentioned in another book and I was interested in learning about the advertising history of Aunt Jemima. This actually covered very little of the actual advertising history and centered more on the societial mores. The book was pretty dry and geared more towards a thesis than a book it seemed like. Not the best nonfiction read I've picked up.

Dracula vs. Hitler by Patrick Sheane Duncan, 508 pages

Imagine Dracula revived to fight the Nazi invaders of his homeland. Then, what if Hitler discovered news of Dracula and wanted immortality for himself. If this plot piques your interest, this is the book for you. Very well-done, not hokey or trite. I really enjoyed it.
