Currently Reading O Jerusalem by Larry Collins, Dominique Lapierre

A must read! I think this is my fourth time reading it, each time I end up staying up into the wee hours of the next day to finish it. It is non-fiction and excellent, at least I think it is.

I did exactly the opposite. Every single thing in this book really happened. I couldn’t possibly have made any of it up.”
