really liked it
bookshelves: biography, american-lit, essays
Read in September, 2009

I suppose you either like A.J. Jacobs’ approach to journalism or you don’t: he comes up with a somewhat outlandish concept and then experiments on himself, reading the Encyclopedia Britannica in a year (The Know-It-All) or following the Bible, um, religiously (The Year of Living Biblically). I think he’s really funny, and often interesting, and occasionally even insightful, so I enjoyed this collection of short pieces. If you like his sort of thing, you’ll like this; if you don’t, you won’t.

If you don’t know yet, I recommend trying The Know-It-All, as it’s still my favorite.
