In response to an excellent suggestion, here is a Sunday morning opening thread for those who want to discuss books they have read, are reading, or hope to read. Go to it, my friends! As for me, between chick-lit (my vice, along with chocolate), I’m reading Nick Bunker’s Making Haste from Babylon: The Mayflower Pilgrims and Their World: A New History. I got it out of the library yesterday, and am still on Chapter One (after having read the long introduction). I therefore don’t yet have a review, beyond saying that I like the typeface.
As for the chick-lit, I have some pride, and will not reveal here the nice dreck I got for $o.35 per book at the Friends of the Library store.
