Book #17

I've been doing a lot of book sampling the last week or so for my Kindle, and it's taken a lot of my reading time.  I did however just finish "In The Garden Of Beasts" by Erik Larson.  It was a very disturbing book that centered on the Dodd family. William Dodd was our first ambassador to Hitler's Germany.  He, his wife and two grown children experienced the rise of Hitler first hand.  
It was maddening, watching our government simply let Hitler grow in power, not heeding the signs or warnings given them about what was going on. So much horror might have been avoided if they had just acted earlier.
