Week 19 is over and I’m up to 16 books for the year. Last week I finished The Address Book by Deirdre Mask. It was a fascinating read on the development of named streets and the importance of having an address in today’s society. Each chapter looks at a different place in the world (and at different times in history) to discuss the importance of addresses. I found it a really quick read because each chapter was so well written.
The other book I finished last week was Catch Me If You Can. I had always loved the movie, so I was curious if the book would be similar. The storyline moves really quickly so it was a fairly easy read. To my surprise (although it really shouldn’t be surprising), Abagnale exaggerated a lot of the stories in the book. A new book came out last year by Alan Logan that details the exaggerations in Abagnale’s escapades. I’ve already requested it from the library!
