Thinking of Boston.....

In honor of Boston, here's a post from the JFK Library.  I saw this quote today and just loved it:
He read in the strangest way . . . He'd read walking, he'd read at the table, at meals, he'd read after dinner, he'd read in the bathtub . . . He really read all the times you don't think you have time to read. . . . He was always reading—practically while driving a car.

You can see a list of some of the books the President owned as well.  And one the house on Bowdoin Street - this is neat because it is a list of whatever books were in the house, including things like insurance annuals! There is then a list of books considered Kennedy's favorites.  The one on John Quincy Adams amused me - I wonder if he'd compare himself to Adams at all?  Seems an odd comparison to me.....
