Gore Vidal’s Burr On The Weekend Reading List

This weekend I’ll be reading Gore Vidal’s BurrThis is a novel of Aaron Burr’s life as portrayed by the well-known author.

I’ll also be reading The Rise Of American Democracy: Jefferson To Lincoln by Sean Wilentz. I suppose the title basically explains the book.

Also, I’ve reading been bits and pieces of Spoon River Anthology by Edgar Lee Masters. This is a book of free verse profiles about the imagined inhabitants of a small American town. Many of the residents of this town had hidden scandal in their lives. It was published in 1915.

The more books we read the better off we are.
