I used to be a voracious reader, but real life and being online has really gotten in the way of my reading. (I have always had an interest in Holocaust reading, too, Cherpa!)
For now, I am trying to get through the book, "The Last Investigation"
by Gaeton Fonzi. It is considered THE premier book about the Kennedy assassination and cover up. I happen to be his youngest daughter's very close friend of 35 years and spent much time in their home. Mr. Fonzi was a soft-spoken, humble, intelligent, man. I last saw him a year before he passed. He passed away last August from complications of severe Parkinson's and it shames me to say how little I and even his own family knew of the importance of this man's work. My friend, when she sent me the autographed copy of his book wrote a note, asking me to do Cliff Notes for her!
His widow is now pushing for further recognition, using the fact that this year is the 50th anniversary of the assassination. She has had government officials (and other equally sketchy officials) visiting her, trying to convince her to turn over some very damaging tapes and other information.
Also turns out that Mr. Fonzi was Bill O'Reilly's mentor when Bill was a young man, just starting out in the investigative journalist business. Bill O'Reilly called personally to express his condolences to the Fonzi family.

"...But historians and researchers consider Mr. Fonzi’s book among the best of the roughly 600 published on the Kennedy assassination, and credit him with raising doubts about the government’s willingness to share everything it knew."http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/12/us/ga ... ation.html
