  • Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving is maybe one of our simpler holidays. We give thanks for what we have and we eat good food.

    I love to listen to memoirs read by the authors that wrote them. Not so long ago, I was quite skeptical of all audiobooks. I viewed listening to a book as cheating, unless it was a matter of poor eyesight. I have, however, warmed somewhat to audiobooks, and memoirs read by their authors have become a...

  • April showers bring.. ...rain delays - this season's baseball books

    Baseball season is here, and with it, a whole new lineup of baseball books. I just finished reading Driving Mr. Yogi: Yogi Berra, Ron Guidry, and Baseball's Greatest Gift by Harvey Araton, and it is a thoroughly enjoyable visit to Yankees' spring training.

  • Geeking Out with Ken Jennings and All Kinds of Maps

    Have you ever found a book you didn't even know you were looking for? That's how Maphead: Charting the Wide, Weird World of Geography Wonks by Ken Jennings felt to me. I didn't know I was looking for this book, but I am so glad I found it. I love, or geek, if you prefer, maps and globes....

  • Geeking Out in the Kitchen

    I've always thought if you can read a recipe, you can cook, more or less. However, I've been told this simply isn't true and that there are actually very smart people who fail miserably in the kitchen. This past summer O'Reilly , a publisher I usually associate with software manuals,...

  • Zoo Story: Life in the Garden of Captives by Thomas French

    "Eleven elephants. One plane. Hurtling together across the sky." From these opening sentences, I was captivated by this account of the inner workings of zoos, in particular Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa. The author is a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and currently a professor of journalism at Indiana...
