Zero Day by David Baldacci

“A typical Baldacci thriller with a combat veteran who seeks the truth in a murder of an entire family. Something to read when you don’t want to think about your daily life. Books like this make my life seem so simple.”

Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. by Ron Chernow

“A very tedious book that takes you through the story of John Rockefeller and his upbringing. John Rockefeller Sr.’s dad was not very attentive to the family, which put him in the role of helping his family out from a very young age. It takes you through his early years all the way through his years at Standard Oil and some of his ruthless tactics.”
