Drop back 100 years tomorrow

My plan to review the 1959 bestsellers from 1-10 order ran into a snag. I haven’t gotten to the library to pick up the #10 book on the list.

Tomorrow instead of a review of  Robert Ruark’s Poor No More from 50 years ago, I’ll post a review of a 1909 bestseller that I read and enjoyed:  The Man in Lower Ten by Mary Roberts Rinehart.

How could anyone not like a book that includes this line:

“[Y]ou want the unvarnished and ungarnished truth, and I’m no hand for that. I’m a lawyer.”

I read. I write. I think. I make big ideas simple. I help teachers teach expository writing to teens and adults. In my free time, I read and review old novels.
