Agathe Von Trapp: Memories Before and After the Sound of Music: An Autobiography
Omg, nerdout! Eminently readable. It is even painless to find out everything in the Rodgers & Hammerstein production is a lie. Oh, except the nun song abt Maria, that must be true. Read it or never talk to me about The Sound of Music again.
Edwin G. Burrows: Gotham: A History of New York City to 1898 (The History of New York City)
There is a painlessness to reading this (big) book that outperforms even Kershaw's Hitler duo. Like the information is being uploaded right into yr cellular memory. Smooth as 25yo scotch.
