I’m doing research for a project involving the history of transportation in New York City.  Naturally, one can’t discuss such a history without talking extensively about Robert Moses.

I’m a big eBooks fan, but unfortunately, the books I was looking for on this particular topic aren’t available in electronic form.  I received the physical manifestations of these books today, and I instantly realized yet another advantage of eBooks.

Two books about Robert Moses, "The Power Broker" and "Robert Moses and the Modern City: The Transformation of New York."

Thousand page tomes aren’t quite so intimidating in electronic form.  Yikes!
