    Also about ten miles from Americus is the town of Plains and the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site (which encompasses quite a bit of the town). Carter was our 39th president.

    Well Read, Well Fed; as you may imagine from the name is a combination diner and bookstore. The food runs from soups, salads, burgers and sandwiches and the books are both paperbacks and hardbacks. The people who ran the place seemed nice. Check it out; you may find a book you've been looking for. I did.
