A bite sized morsel

Don’t draw from my lack of writing that no books are passing this desk.  Rather there aren’t enough hours in the day.  A quick list of books that I have read or am reading with the One Sentence Book Review (OSBR):

“One Man’s Meat” by E.B.White  

The best essay so far is “Freedom” from July 1940 Harper’s Magazine.  Text is here.  You can also go to Harper’s and get a lifetime membership for $46…
