    I read James Comey's book. It was juicy and hilarious. And so true.
    I am still getting through Michael Wolf's book.

    This president will truly go down (waaay down) as the most embarrassing president ever.
    Faith can move mountains, but don't forget to bring your shovel.

    I read a collection of fables by Ivan Krylov. They are in Russian. Symbolic yet interesting.

    Doubtful. It was from his recommendation that I read it.
