- •Devil in the White City - Erik LarsonThis book took all of April and like two days of May. I am glad it's over. I thoroughly enjoyed the serial killer chapters and especially the detective at the very end, but the architecture drained me. It was neat to see people taking on new inventions (sup, Shredded Wheat and Ferris Wheel), but man was I tired after those chapters. Hopefully the movie won't focus too much on the architecture details.
