Yes, I've gone and done an article on The Da Vinci Code
Yep, I did it. I wasn't going to, and then I did. Five random points, a couple of nifty hot-links to some unexpected sites and a very interesting annotated bibliography. We do a new essay each month about this time over at the Hearts & Minds website, and this month we are proudly adding to the net overload of all things Da Vinci.
I would be delighted if you checked it out, and even more delighted if you told your friends and neighbors. And then, consider buying a couple of books for your local library. I'll bet you haven't see this particular batch of recommended reads on anybody else's list.
You can find the Hearts & Minds website article and book list here.
For a special treat during this Dan Brown superbowl weekend, we'd recommend owning the marvelous CD Great Big World by singer-songwriter, Pierce Pettis, and play his wonderous, haunting song, "Leonardo." We sell all his albums--Pierce's that is, although Brown probably has some recordings, too--and couldn't resist telling you about this one. The lyrics are best heard with the song, but for now, check out the words, here.
