I've read the Steve Jobs bio and found it interesting but not riveting. I use to read outloud from Where the Sidewalks End, to my children.

Another suggestion, Bill. The World Without Us by Alan Weisman who has to be one of the smartest men who ever lived! This book is not an easy read but a fascinating one about what would happen to the world and everything in it if humans were to disappear today.

I have to admit that Where the Sidewalk Ends is farther out there than I remembered as a kid. Perhaps my teachers didn't read us every story.

Thanks for the suggestion, !.
