More books

Last weekend, at the in-laws, I read The Hills of Tuscany by Ferenc Mate, an easy and fun book, and, I must confess, a recent offering from Maeve Binchy. To paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld, when you go to the in-laws, you read the books they have.

In the mail this week came The Other Venice: Secrets of the City by Predrag Matvejevic, a sort of mystical work with great photographs, and, inevitably, Chow Venice: Savoring the Food and Wine of La Serenissima, Second Edition.

From the library today, Dana got for me Jonathan Alter's The Defining Moment: FDR's Hundred Days and the Triumph of Hope and some other book I haven't looked at yet.
