Wednesday reading — sash weight tie pins

What I've been reading

I actually only finished one book this week, since I was mostly busy doing other things, which included reading and/or retelling various stories from One Summer: America, 1927. Everyone I have come in contact with has learned all about the Sash Weight Murder and subsequent trial and that one time that Calvin Coolidge issued a statement saying that he wouldn't make Herbert Hoover his secretary of state even if the present officeholder quit, although he had demonstrated no more intention of doing this than Hoover had expressed interest in replacing him.

What I'm reading now

Thanks to its convenient Penguin paperback format, I started reading Big Money on planes and I have continued reading it on trains. Perhaps I will also read it in automobiles for the trifecta.
