The Parallel Lives of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln

You know what they say about good intentions and that makes me nervous because I so often have them only to see them fail.

As is almost always the case, I have once again bitten off more than I can chew.  There are simply far too many non-fiction books that I want to read.  I try to limit my choices but even so I end up feeling hopelessly behind.

In one particular case, I had high hope of reading Giants: The Parallel Lives of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln and writing an insightful essay encompassing the MLK holiday, the inauguration, and history.

Alas, it was not to be.  The book has been buried int he TBR pile as I struggle to find time and energy to read the stack of non-fiction I have committed to.  I still plan to read it, but I missed the chance to connect to the events of the day (something I have never been any good at anyways).

But I thought I would make note of the book in case any of my good readers were not aware of it.  So you read it and I will read it and we can discuss it.  Or if anyone has already read it, please leave a comment or send me a link to your review.

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season – oh, and watching golf too).
