Reading through the Winter

One way to get through the Michigan winter is to read books and watch DVDs. This weekend we watched biographies of  Frank Lloyd Wright, Thomas Hart Benton and Mark Twain, the latter two focusing on the heartland of Missouri and fitting right in with the book John is reading to me every morning and night on Harry Truman. We are approaching page 300, still more than 600 pages to go. But as is true with other biographies by David McCullough, it's very well written and we never imagine the book is too long.
