I found that yesterday's AL Direct had several very interesting links. One is a link to a positive Booklist review of my book Real Lives Revealed. I also enjoyed reading the article "The Top Ten Books of 1709" by Jill Lepore from The New Yorker; not a lot of books were actually published that year in the American colonies, but you will still recognize the names of some of the bestselling authors. I also liked the links to a Mental Floss lineup of photos from Presidential Libraries, which includes Gerald Ford meeting with George Harrison and Billy Preston (a contrast in hair).
