Opening Sentences of the Day: On Mount Hood and An Architectural Guidebook to Portland

On this Big Shopping Day, it seems appropriate to feature two books that I think would make great Christmas presents for the Oregonians or Oregon visitors on your list:


Misty here at 6,000 feet on the south side of Mount Hood.
-- On Mt. Hood: A Biography of Oregon's Perilous Peak by Jon Bell. Another good one from OSU Press.



It may seem strange to begin a guide to architecture with an "empty" space.
-- An Architectural Guidebook to Portland by Bart King, also published by OSU Press. He is talking, of course, about Pioneer Courthouse Square, Portland's living room.





A Few More Pages hosts Book Beginnings every Friday.  The event is open for the entire week.
