“Just finished Jerry Seinfeld’s ‘Is this Anything?’, a book of his stand-up comedy over the years. Each chapter is a decade. I found the teens, the last decade that went into the COVID issues, the funniest. Also, just started re-reading Jack Kerouac’s ‘On the Road,’ tales of his cross-country treks and the characters he meets along the way.” —LARRY JAMIESON, Portland

Mainers, please email to tell us about the book on your bedside table right now.

Send your pick to [email protected], and we may use it as a future Bedside Table.
