Now I'm looking for a good fluff read for a change of pace...
I read that book a few years ago. I recommended it to my brother. He liked it. As a gift, I bought him an antique framed photograph of "The White City" from 1893. I heard that a movie version is in production.

It would make a great movie, IMO. You remember the book didn't have many pictures but what they did have was amazing. I bet your brother loved that gift.

I wish I could have seen it in person, especially the Court of Honor.

That was the book I was looking for a few months ago but I could not remember the title of it, thanks..

Right now I am reading a book about computer hacking and the methods they use to compromise a system.

it was sad, it was a great episode though, but it was an end of an era Jim and Dwight are my favorites, but the show won't be the same without Michael

I have probably read that one. There was a series of romance books with Texas in the title. I think I've read about half of them.
