I can't remember why I picked this one up, other than I believed it to be one of those expected YA reads of junior-high years. Imagine my surprise when I came across the reference to puce sneakers and the memory of having read that before came floodi...more

We read this out loud with our children in anticipation of a trip to New York. I don't know how I missed it in my childhood, but I had never heard of it. The kids weren't as super in to it as I expected them to be, and for the life of me I could not...more

Reading Magic by Mem Fox

I feel like this book should be required reading for anyone who has or will ever have children, ever spends time with children, has ever seen children, or has ever been a child. I seriously loved it, and will be forever grateful to my son's preschool...more

Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
Rate this book
Clear rating
If Anthony Bourdain's stated goal in writing this book had been to convince the world that he is a vile, low-life, (hard-working!) scum bag, he couldn't have been more effective than what he actually came up with. Unlike Ruth Reichl's writing, Bourda...more

Maphead by Ken Jennings

One thing I like about Ken Jennings's books is the way he shines a spotlight on these hidden little sub-sections of society. Being a geek himself, Jennings is able to hone in on all the various geeky hobbyists out there and explain them to the rest o...more
