Lessons from a true Bostonian
Fun to listen and learn about some local Boston history and to get colorful book reviews about subjects I might not have considered reading before.
Listened to this the whole ride home from work, instead of music!
Maybe I will start reading next
Ken’s love and knowledge of books draws you in!
I always thought used book shops were run by stuffy old guys. Ken Gloss' enthusiasm for what he does really comes through.
