Literally the Best Reviews: Panorama

Panorama - Steve Kistulentz
Little, Brown & Company
400 Pages

Sometimes I pick up a book, not exactly planning to bring it home. Somehow I forget that it’s in the pile when I check out and it ends up on the reading shelf by my chair. Such is the case with Panorama by Steve Kistulentz. I took it off the shelf just the other day and ended up reading the whole book in a single day. That’s a win for for readers everywhere.

Reminiscing: Say Cheese!

I would venture a guess that there are more photographs taken today than any other time in American history. Almost all of that is entirely due to the ease of use with cameras on all our cell phones. It’s easy to snap a couple of pictures when the thing is sitting in an unsnapped holster. However, I would also guess (and this is my opinion only) that while more photos are taken, they are likely of lesser quality than we used to see when we had to buy film and get that film developed.
