The Circle Maker (review)

Oh, the Places You'll Go!

I recently tweeted, “Travel every chance you have, to every place you can. After reading, it’s the best way to stay in school.” Many responded in one way or another with the following question: “Where are the best places to go?”

The Church Without _______

I'm generally not a big fan of bumper stickers, of advertising platitudinous tweets or angry opinions with my vehicle. But this one caught my attention.
