Stay-at-home shelfie #35

Lost in the shadows on the left is The 84th Infantry Division in The Battle of Germany by Lt. Theodore Draper. My grandfather, John Alexander Otto (1911-1991), was in the 84th. I'm going to write a post about Pappy's time in the service, and I realize throughout this series I've been saying — almost to the point of it being a running joke — that I'm going to do a future post on something or the other, but in this case it's going to happen soon. Stay tuned.

Then there's my little collection of art history books, three of which are by Ross King. The reddish-orange book that's kind of hidden is Vanished Smile: The Mysterious Theft of Mona Lisa, by R.A. Scotti.

The last book in this photo is In Search of the Lost Chord: 1967 and the Hippie Idea, by Danny Goldberg.

Up next: Nerdy computer books!
