Read about Josh Hanagarne in the 9/9/09 Salt Lake Tribune, "Hefting kettlebells, hitting the books".
Then take a look at his blog, "World's Strongest Librarian".
Josh and RG have 1 thing in common -- a love of "A Confederacy of Dunces".
Excerpt from Tribune article. Raised in a bookish household where trips to the library were a family tradition, Hanagarne loves books for the way they bring a mind in focus, and also how they reveal truths about people who read them. He believes the titles on his four-favorite-books list -- Confederacy of Dunces , Blood Meridian , Catch-22 , Don Quixote -- reveal more about him than he could say about himself.
