I mostly read non-fiction. I’d pick anything from Erik Larson, the most recent being Dead Wake about the sinking of the Lusitania during World War I.
Galena Illinois. For a relatively short drive from Chicago, you can get great golf, biking, history, architecture, and beautiful scenery all in a weekend
I’m a fan of all Chicago sports teams but am especially partial to the Bulls and Cubs. There’s nothing better than a night at Wrigley in the summertime and I grew up watching MJ and Scottie in the 90s.
