Read from November 10 to December 06, 2010

With few exceptions, utter pap. I picked it up because it was on a list of the most recommended titles for college-bound students to read, which frightens me a bit (though I suspect for a high school student some of these essays may be enlightening in both content and form). If you're on the fence, just read the first essay about tipping "the pizza dude," and you'll get what I mean. Nearly the only thing I found of genuine interest was that the essays of the common folk tended to be more substantive than those of the famous contributors. Go figure.
