We may have had threads like this before, but just curious, as John Lindberg sends me increasingly delirious poetry, what everybody is reading during this extended pandemic lock down? I’ll start. So you know I’m working on my project. I am currently reading parts of a few books on the early development of the American economy. It’s a fascinating story, and I want to craft it right. Two are on industrialization, three are specifically on the development of the cotton industry, and two deal with the founding of the national armories at Springfield and Harper’s Ferry.

On the side, at night, I’m reading some old Bloom County cartoon collections and Pat McManus.

What about you? Whatcha readin’?
