It’s been quite sometime since I’ve enlightened you with my mom’s reading list. Here’s a small smattering of what I’ve been reading while dust bunnies have been establishing a small colony under the beds (I think they are planning a takeover). As usual, my reviews are extraordinary clever.
(Note: Book covers and titles are affiliate links)
The Corinthian. Have you noticed how there is always a Georgette Heyer book on my list? There is a reason for that.
All Creatures Great and Small. Never have I laughed so hard about a cow’s uterus.
The Great Mortality. Never have I laughed so hard about the bubonic plague.
The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sister, Two Rabbits and a Very Interesting Boy. Long title, lovely book. Enjoy it yourself, then read it to your children.
Daughter of Persia: A Woman’s Journey from Her Father’s Harem Through the Islamic Revolution. The longer the title, the better the book. Fascinating. Must Read.
The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains. Read this…. while you still can…
Real Food: What You Should Eat and Why. I’m hungry.
Cheap: The High Cost of Discount Culture. Perhaps I shouldn’t have read this book*, because now I can’t shop at IKEA.
Sex, Time and Power. Debatable. But, that reminds me, I need to take my iron supplement.
The Female Brain. We are all crazy. Accept it.
*I jest, and yet I wouldn’t want to avoid reading unpleasant truths just so I can buy cheap particleboard bookshelves without being fully informed of the consequences.
