I've been reading a biography of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis and they recount a weekend visit she made to someone's country house where the hostess was annoyed at how often Jackie would disappear to READ! A girl after my own heart.
Wanted to mention I'm just done with that book and diving into Obsessive Genius, The Inner World of Marie Curie by Barbara Goldsmith. I expect Jackie and Marie had fairly different lives, but I also expect I'll find some things in common.
And big thanks to Tom for reminding us (nearly every day around here) what a great pleasure it is to read.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
