If there’s going to be a Balloon Juice Book Club, commentor Catclub suggests, then Rick Perlstein’s Nixonland might be a good place to start.
I’ll admit that I’ve been avoiding this worthy tome (I did read various excerpts when it first appeared) because it’s 900 pages of stuff I didn’t enjoy living through, and which will no doubt piss me off all over again to read about. It’s available electronically, there’s plenty of cheap used copies out there, and the waiting list at public libraries should’ve worn down by attrition. If enough BJ readers are interested, I’d be willing to read / blog about it, maybe at the rate of a chapter or two every week. What say you?
