I wandered into a map shop and picked up MapHead: Charting the Wide, Weird World of Geography Wonks by Ken Jennings (Remember him from Jeopardy?) Unfortunately I forgot that I already had that book. Appears I need to check LT before I buy another book as this isn't the first time this has happened.

Ordered The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry and The Descent of Man by Grayson Perry from bookdepository today. And I just realized that they share the same last name! I wonder if they're related.

Received from Bookmooch Hillbilly Elegy. It's been well reviewed but I fear it may be a tad depressing.
