One for the Books
(Joe Queenan)
Joe Queenan

Believe it or not, Joe Queenan is always reading - up to 20 books at a time.  His new book, One for the Books, discusses the books that shaped his life.  He just finished Middlemarch (after 34 years) - and it's no longer on his "desert island" list.  He grew up in a housing project and books were his escape.  He explains how he read during school, why he ditched his typewriter and how reading put off him learning to drive until age 51.  Just don't bring up the Philadelphia Eagles.
