Seeing as how we now have a few more readers than, well, zero, I wanted to try my first ?open thread.? This one is topic-specific and might also become another recurring feature, asking a simple question: What are you reading? (Aside from this blog, of course.)
It?s a natural question for this blog. After all, just take a look where literacy.gov leads you.
At the risk of offending the disclaimer gods, I?ll caveat this whole exercise by saying that any book that I or anyone else may or may not be reading in no ways constitutes an endorsement of particular books. (There are tens of millions of great tomes here; come read a few, if you can.) If there are any other lawyers about, feel free to add a few more disclaimers of your own.
Now that that?s out of the way ?
Between all of my online and offline reading of periodicals and such, I don?t get as much time to read for pleasure as I?d like. (Is that heresy, or what?) But a few days ago, I came by a copy of Michael Beschloss?s new book, ?Presidential Courage: Brave Leaders and How They Changed America, 1789-1989.?
What are others reading, and what do you think about it? And please be patient if your comments aren?t posted immediately.
