Reading Roundup Wrapup: February 2014

Pick of the month: "This Is NPR" by Noah Adams, John Ydstie, Renée Montagne, and Ari Shapiro. This history of NPR, published on its fortieth anniversary, was completely delightful to me, who grew up with NPR to an extent and became a regular listener upon acquiring his own car in 2001. Filled with great anecdotes and great insight into what is surely our country's best news organization (among other things).
