Imperium by Robert   Harris
Imperium: A Novel of Ancient Rome (Cicero, #1)
by Robert Harris (Goodreads Author)

Rate this book
Clear rating
I read this for a prompt: "The first book in a series you haven't read." The "series" is actually a trilogy on the life of Cicero. I'm not sure I'll rush to complete the trilogy, but I will probably read it in paper format if I do, rather than listen ...more

The Organic Cook's Bible by Jeff Cox
Rate this book
Clear rating
I impulsively bought this book on a vacation bookstore visit and then had to carry it home -- it's heavy (very nice paper). After a brief introduction to various concepts of organic food (I think the book is about 10 years old or more so it was not a ...more

Garden of Lamentations by Deborah Crombie
Garden of Lamentations (Duncan Kincaid & Gemma James #17)
by Deborah Crombie (Goodreads Author)
read in February, 2017

How to Hygge by Signe Johansen

Much of what I said about The Little Book of Hygge applies to this one too. Signe Johansen is maybe a little bossier than Meik Wiking, and the book is illustrated with lovely photographs. The recipes she gives seem to include many ingredients that ...more

Already much-parodied only a few months after publication, this really isn't such a bad little book. It had been quite a while since I bought a book for my "How-to-be-perfect" shelf (this normally includes books on organization, housekeeping and deco ...more

Having reread Eight Cousins for a reading challenge, I had to refresh my memory of what happened next in the lives of Rose Campbell and her seven male cousins. Although I enjoyed revisiting the family, the book was not as satisfactory as its predece ...more
