Books, books, books!
Is there anything better than losing yourself in a good book,
whether fluffy novel or scholarly tome?
This blog is for long and short reviews of books read,
essays about book series, memories of books,
quotations, and anything else with a literary bent.

Books from McKay's in Knoxville

  • The picture book version of Lassie Come-Home, with story retold by Rosemary Wells and illustrated by Susan Jeffers.
  • The American Language, Fourth Edition, H.L. Mencken
  • Supplement Two: The American Language, H.L. Mencken
  • The Light of the Home: An Intimate View of the Lives of Women in Victorian America, Harvey Green

The last four are from a series called "Sisters in Time" which has several dozen books, all covering a historic period of time in American history.

I also ended up buying a couple of books I already had, but since they didn't cost much, I won't quibble; I might be able to rehome. And I bought a Christmas gift. Plus two Christmas CDs, "Christmas Caroling Through the Ages" (Greg Smith Singers and Friends) and "In Dulci Jubilo: Christmas With James Galway and the Regensburger Domspatzen."
