I've been reading a lot about Berlin, a most fascinating city, which I'll be visiting in the spring.

Just the history of the divided city post-World War II and the Wall, how it went up, how it came down, is enough to keep you up late many a night reading many a book.

I've been reading a book about Bach meeting Frederick The Great, by James R. Gaines called Evening in the Palace Of Reason which is very ... should I say, "enlightening?"
