LibraryThing Review

User Review  - buffalogr - LibraryThing

Another good reference book for those who travel. Contains references that will help locate the best BBQ, burgers, chicken and other local favorites. I call it a " Micky-d " avoidance resource. It lives on Kindle, so it precludes RV clutter. Read full review
