There’s just no way (no crassless way) to tie today’s U. S. Holiday into books/reading. Well, there’s no way that I can think of — more power to you if you pull it off (and I’ll likely steal it next year).
You non-U. S. people have a good day. U. S. readers, I won’t say “Happy Memorial Day,” because, that’s just missing the point, but I hope you find the time to observe the day as it ought to be observed and enjoy the time off work (if you get any).
We’ll be back tomorrow.
