Can anyone recommend nay nonfiction or fiction books about Abe &/or Mary? Just visited Springfield IL- awesome. Now I have to read about him.

Hi Heather,

I would recommend the book  "Mary" by  Janis Cooke Newman. This is a fictional account of the life of Mary Todd Lincoln. It is a very thick book, but so far I really like it.

(Totally a tongue in cheek recommendation!!)  Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter  (I have no idea if it is good or not--it's on the TBR)
