One thought on “What You Need To Read, December 2019”

  1. In December 2019 I read “Disney’s Land”. This was an extremely intensive and useful history of Disney Land. There were a few certainties that I definitely knew, yet there were different realities that were fresh out of the plastic new to me, which I grinned at and delighted in. There were parts that were strong and brimming with data, yet it streamed well.
