All my best, dear readers,
No book review today.
But please read this column.
First, you need some pertinent facts.
I ran a bed-and-breakfast and a bookstore in Waynesville for 20 years, and with some overlap, taught literature, history, and Latin in Asheville for another 20 years. I am now a freelance writer.
For the last 20 years, I have written book reviews for The Smoky Mountain News, but I am not on staff at the paper.
In other words, I have only a small stake in what I am asking here.
Now to the subject literally at hand, namely the newspaper you are reading.
