I'm pretty sure I bought this book around the time that I moved to California... 12 years ago this month! Now that I'm on my way out, I figured it would be a good time to finally read the thing.
I have a sinking feeling that reading this book will make me wish I had seen more of San Francisco during my time living here, but here's my positive spin: it will give me a good list of things to see when I come visit -- we always see more when visiting a city (or hosting visitors) than when we live there, don't we? (At least, I know I do...)
This one isn't too long, but I hope the writing is good, since I'm not fantastic at digesting historical information -- "concise" in the title seems promising. I'm flying to the UK on Friday, so I'll have plenty of reading time on the plane there and back.
So what's your first book of the year?
