The Inventor and the Tycoon: A Gilded Age Murder and the Birth of Moving Pictures, by Edward Ball

My wife and I had a five day weekend over this period due to our taking Friday off, Monday as President's day, and a favorably timed snow storm on Thursday that closed down our offices.  Favorably not just because it was 5 days off, but because we had a big-ish home improvement project that ended up taking almost every waking hour of that 5 day period.

To kill the time when we were not being too noisy and/or not listening to Pandora, we would put this book on for an hour or two at a time.  It was pretty enjoyable, and while it mostly focused on the photographer (murderer), the rain tycoon part was probably even more interesting to us.  All in all a great book for a long and sometimes tedious DIY project.
