So what were the Titanic's Last Secrets?

yup, me too

a diary on each book'd be pretty interesting

how's your brain feel? that's quite the neural massage!

i expect with that goal, you won't have much time for commenting, busy with your one-man march against ignorance, lol.

great choices, it looks like...

In each line, the title contains a link to the book's details at Amazon.com, and the date contains a link to a review (a diary, if you will.)

As far as Titanic's last secrets, there's a conversation about some of them at one of the diary entries, although I have to be careful about spoilers, one of the house rules at the 50 Book Challenge.
