The Wordy Shipmates

I got a package in the mail yesterday - it's an advanced copy of Sarah Vowell's latest book, The Wordy Shipmates.
I'm terribly excited about reading this as Sarah has become one of my MUST read authors. Her stuff is non-fiction and I usually stick to fiction. Sarah has a way of making her subjects interesting and funny at the same time. I mean funny. I actually laugh out loud when I read her books. I don't do that, as a rule, as I have fairly high standards as to what constitutes funny - that's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

I'll have to keep you posted on what I've read. It looks like she's going to delve into the whole meme that the "US was settled as a Christian Nation". Should be fun reading.

Oooh! I love Sarah Vowell and I can't wait to see this book. When is it going to be out for the rest of us to read and how did you score an advanced copy????
