BRADBERRY: Great weather for good books


Niagara Gazette — 3. “Zealot” by Reza Aslan

4. “Still Foolin’ ‘Em” by Billy Crystal

5. “Lean In” by Sheryl Sandberg with Nell Scovell

Barnes & Noble’s 2013 list includes:

“To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee

“David and Goliath” by Malcolm Gladwell

Other than what looks like a full ton of required technical reading that I am trying to catch up on, I am also plowing through H.W. Brands’ “T.R. The Last Romantic,” an exhausting biography of Theodore Roosevelt the 26th president who served as vice president until William McKinley was assassinated on September 6, 1901 by Leon Czolgosz at the Pan American Exposition (World’s Fair) in Buffalo.

At the age of 42 Roosevelt became the youngest president in American history, and the first to invite an African American (Booker T. Washington) on October 16, 1901 to be invited to the White House for a meal.

BTW (by the way) the blockbuster film, Lee Daniels’, “The Butler” is rumored to be scheduled for release on DVD, Blu-ray and online in time for Christmas, in case you finish reading your book selections before spring arrives.

Meanwhile, enjoy the great weather with a good book!
