What I'm Reading, July 06

The links take you to Amazon's page for each book.
  • Cape Light - Color Photographs by Joel Meyerowitz - Pretty much a picture book with the kind of photos that make me jealous that I don't take pictures like that. Lovely beach images.

  • Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass
  • - I'm listening to this on audiotape. Wow! It's much better than I expected. It's the autobiography of a famous former American slave and spokesman for freedom. Beautifully written.

  • The United Way Scandal - An Insider's Account of What Went Wrong and Why by John S. Glaser. I once worked for United Way of America, back before the scandal broke and the organization's president went to jail. I knew and respected the author. He's written a combination of a journalistic report and a case study for nonprofit professionals. To me it's very interesting.

  • Wright Sized Houses - Small homes by Frank Lloyd Wright. Excellent photos. Style-defining architecture, although the furnishings look very dated now.
