Fan,

It's not you, it's the author. Meacham is one of the dryest writers I've ever attempted to read. I attempted his "An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship", about Roosevelt & Churchill and only lasted about 100 pages. If you ever see an interview with him, he speaks dry as well. Think he's the editor of Newsweek.

BTW, I'm reading "The Shiloh Campaign" edited by Woodworth. It's one of those collections of essays which I'm not generally not a fan of. Will do a mini-review when through.
