Vacation Reading

ba7995b8603e9da5a372ce12620aad28I hope that you are all enjoying your holiday. Some of you have emailed me about other books that you are reading and bookstores that you have visited, and I am delighted to see that you are pursuing literate lives. I just reread Malcolm Gladwell’s What The Dog Saw: And Other Adventures. The book is about Obsessives, Pioneers, and other varieties of Minor Genius. It is a book about people who are very good at what they do, but are not necessarily well-known. As a reader and writer, I must say that I enjoy reading these short essays because of the way he engages us as a writer. Some of his premises may leave you saying…hum? But as a writer studying the format, you say ahhh.
