Murder and Blizzard

Two of the books 've swallowed in the past week, after more than four month of plainly not reading:
"The Children's Blizzard" by David Laskin talked about the 1888 blizzard in the Nebraska/Dakota territories. Somewhere between 250 and 500 people died, many of them children. It's a fairly graphic read, but enjoyable.

"Murder of Tutankhamen" by Bob Brier was self-explanatory. After reading it, one can see why so many people were and are into anything Egypt-related.

Both were enjoyable reads, and a nice bread from a Diablo 2 mod, Median XL, that 've been brain-numbingly beating during the any and all free hours.
