I was reading a book on the MET last night by Michael Gross. The introduction was interesting but the rest of it was just "and then this happened....and then this happened...." which I find dull in non-fiction books. Yeah, there's got to be some magic to a non-fiction book or else it's just dates and names. Boring. What makes a good non-fiction book? I don't know. I never read them.
I guess the MET really is financed by private money and subsidized heavily by the city of New York. I didn't know to the extent. Well, I suppose I shouldn't look down on people who pay the minimum anymore (although I think secretly I still will).
