  5. I know that not everyone likes to curl up with nonfiction books on obscure topics the way I do, but middle school librarians need to take a look at this one For one thing, I love Kurlansky s writing I don t know why It just always sucks me right in, and gets me interested in stuff that I really don t care about, like the history of salt For another thing, National History Day should be flooded with projects on Clarence Birdseye and Philo T Farnsworth, and it ...
