2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat)Latest history book that been taking attention away from the dingo?
(nstampe from Madison)
Eric Weitz's "Weimar Germany: Promise and Tragedy," because Weimar is just one of those subjects I never get tired of, to the point of boring friends. Including the one who made a gift of this particular volume. ;) The dingo's nicely tolerant of this, as long as she gets to go to the beach with some regularity, and as long as I show a Salomon Torres-like rubber-armedness when it comes to throwing things in the park.
