George Washington's Diaries (abridged) edited by Dorothy Twohig. The book was interesting at times for some backstory on who George Washington was, but not very explicit or generally interesting. It was fun to learn that he fell in a frozen river, while running away from indians.
I've been reading The Wines of California, the Pacific Northwest and New York by Roy Andries De Groot. This is an interesting book, as it contains much information (about North American wines) gleaned from years and years of being a food expert for various magazines and publications.
I also picked up Parzival: A Romance of the Middle Ages, by Wolfram Von Eschenbach. It's a poem about the quest for the holy grail, from the beginning of the 13th century.
