The website of Rotary International published a story in August about reading, with “suggestions for making each book count.” Around the middle of the story is this nugget:
Recognize that not all reading pleasures can be shared. I have friends who will swear up and down that Frederick Exley’s A Fan’s Notes is the greatest sports book ever written. This, for the record, is like being the tallest office building in Duluth. Which in and of itself doesn’t make the building special.
Well, don’t worry, Alworth Building, Perfect Duluth Day thinks you’re special. All 247 feet of you.
