OP Wife didn't take the kindle! So I'm reading "Up from Slavery" and it's very good. I just finished Kurlansky's "Salt" a week or so ago and I find out that Booker T first began to learn to read as a young boy while working in a salt factory. Later he worked in a coal mine that supplied the coal for that salt factory's furnaces. I think I might have just glossed over that without noting it had I not been primed by my recent reading.
