Read to Review
"Your assignment, Mr. Phelps ... "
It's hardly a Mission Impossible, but I've been assigned The Geography of Bliss: One Grump's Search for the Happiest Places in the World by Eric Weiner for next month's Internet Review of Books.
A book review isn't about the reviewer, although I suppose a review is the book filtered through the reviewer. So then what happens when a happy person reviews a book chronicling a "grump's search for the happiest places."
I don't know yet, although I know I enjoyed reading the book.
Why not, right? I'm supposed to be the happy person.
