Friday Fifteen

Happy Friday everyone! Feeling even better because it’s a long weekend. Onto the Friday Fifteen, in which I review five books in fifteen words or less.

1. The Premier Book of Major Poets: an Anthology ed. by Anita Dore
All the heavy-hitters, arranged by theme. Walt gave me his copy early in our relationship.

2. How to Eat: The Pleasures and Principles of Good Food by Nigella Lawson
More of a conversation with a chef than a standard cookbook. Really enjoy her ideas, though.

3. The Goldsmith’s Daughter by Tanya Landman
Wish I had this when I was 12 and reading about the Aztecs in class.

4. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling
Love how the series circled back to this. But JK, seriously, why the spiders? Terrifying!

5. The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg
A Christmas favorite, plus Allsburg’s beautiful art.

One thought on “Friday Fifteen

  1. Your Premier Book of Major Poets looks fantastic! It would be nice to have something to supplement my Norton Anthology. I had another, but it fell apart from overuse and is now out of print and irreplaceable. (Well, not for what I’m willing to spend!)
