The Biblioracle: When books ring bells
Like most every dog, my dog Oscar ignores the television, except for one thing: Jeopardy's Daily Double pchoo pchoo pchoo sound. Invariably, when he hears that, he barks. I sometimes think there are books that work this way, that occasionally, we find those authors who are just so attuned to our frequency that our response is a kind of reflex.
