Vacation Reading—Taking Rick Perry To Rhode Island
With a plane to catch soon and time in Rhode Island ahead, it is time to select what book I’ll be reading while on the road.
I’d headed to Rhode Island for a final observance of my father’s life. He spent much of his life in Rhode Island.
I often get a great deal of reading done on airplanes and on vacation.
I’m considering this trip a vaction because I’m certain that this is how dad would have wanted me to imagine the trip.
For this vacation, I’ve picked books relevant to Rhode Island, Cincinnati and Texas—The three places I have lived in life.
I don’t much about this book, but it is just the type of stuff that I often read.
Another book I have is The President Makers 1896-1919—The Culture of Politics & Leadership In An Age of Enlightenment by Matthew Josephson. This book is from 1940.
This is the 2nd book I’ve read by Mr. Josephson. He wrote about the Gilded Age and the Progressive Era. In the President Makers I’m currently on the chapters involved the Presidency of Cincinnati’s William Howard Taft.
Fed Up! may provide me with a few quick blog posts while I’m traveling. Also, since I’ll be wearing a Houston Astros’ baseball hat for much of the trip, maybe I’ll read the book while wearing the cap and make loud comments about seccession and bitching about how George W. Bush was not conservative enough.
It’s going to be a great trip and I’ll be posting from Rhode Island. Thanks to everybody for reading Texas Liberal.
