Books picked up on impulse on a trip to the public library for holds and Costa Rica guidebooks for S.'s Spanish project:
The National Parks of America. Michael Brett
Where Shall Wisdom Be Found? Harold Bloom
The Bronte Myth. Lucasta Miller
The Creation of the Media: Political Origins of Modern Communications. Paul Starr
It's doubtful that I'll do more than skim a section or two out of them, but it's sure nice having the opportunity to do just that.
