Books Worth Reading
Finished this book last night. Harry Truman's Excellent Adventure: The True Story of a Great American Road Trip. I'm doubtful I would've been a Harry Truman fan had I lived in his day, but the tale of our last "poor" President driving around the country with his wife is fun to imagine. It's also interesting when the author compares the path and places Harry traveled versus those same locales today. In most cases, sadly deteriorated or gone.
