A Catskills day trip to Millbrook brought us happily to Merritt Bookstorewhere we perused their sea of books, were dazzled by their clever Hamilton display, and were charmed by their Royal typewriter.  The white typewritten page sitting pertly in its platen roller reads, “This was my mother’s typewriter.”

Chris bought Greg Milner’s PINPOINT: How GPS is Changing Technology, Culture and Our Minds (Norton, May 2016), which is the book on Hobbes’s box today. Of PINPOINT, Richard Rhodes, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb—says, “GPS guides our world. Here at last is the amazing and well-told story of where it came from, how it works, and where it―and we―are going.”
