How I Find Things To Read: October 26, 2008

October 26, 2008

Here’s one way I find things to read…

Today, I read a review on Boston.com of Sarah Vowell’s new book, The Wordy Shipmates. The product description on Amazon.com sums it up better than I can (especially since I haven’t read it yet):

The Wordy Shipmates is New York Times–bestselling author Sarah Vowell’s exploration of the Puritans and their journey to America to become the people of John Winthrop’s “city upon a hill”—a shining example, a “city that cannot be hid.”

Since I completely loved her Assassination Vacation (which is a pretty good title, since the book is about a vacation she spent visiting places associated with the first three presidential assassinations), it was a no-brainer for me to put this on the list of Books To Read.

Which is miles long, but I don’t think it’s a list that can ever be too long.
