Back from the week-end, once again...

Another weekend has come and gone, and with baseball headed into the All Star break and the World Cup reaching it's end (insert head-butting joke here), I guess it's time for American sports fans to catch up on the other European sports we usually don't pay attention to, like the Tour de France. At least that's what I plan on doing.

At any rate, The Canadian National Post ran a wonderful review of THE WEEK-END BOOK in their July 8th edition. Click here for the full text, and an excerpt is below.
Here to divert us from our shallow reading is The Week-End Book, a tome that's as pretty as any Hollywood starlet and as jam-packed with information as the Sunday New York Times.
Peter Mayer, the CEO of Overlook...believes the throw-back design and outdated content feed a nostalgic desire for more leisurely weekends spent playing charades instead of fighting traffic. "It's what people aspire to have their weekends be," he said, "if only theoretically."
