Europa Challenge- Playing Catch-Up
Taking the NYC subway has given me a lot of time to read and most days you can find me with my nose stuck in a book, usually a Europa. But I haven't been blogging a lot, for various reasons, and once again I'm behind on reviews. So I'm going to do a big pos...

Review: NOT MY FATHER'S SON, by Alan Cumming
Not My Father's Son , by Alan Cumming. Published 2014 by Dey St./William Morrow. Memoir. I don't read a ton of celebrity memoirs- usually I have to be a fan of the author, and even then let's just say I manage my expectations. I can't say I'm a particular f...

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
Well, last week did not turn out as expected! Literally on my way out the door to a sewing class, I tripped and fractured a toe, so I spent most of the week with my foot on an orthopedic pillow. Now, you'd think that that would mean I'd do a ton of reading....

Mr. Selfridge is Coming Back to PBS: A Reading List
I'm so excited that "Mr. Selfridge" is coming back to PBS for Season Three on March 29. It's such a fun show about love, shopping and society. Based on the story behind a real London department store (alhtough heavily fictionalized) "Mr. Selfridge" is a sug...

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
I'm still reading my Persephone from last week- Tea with Mr. Rochester is an off-center book of short stories set in England approximately during World War 2, about young women and love. The heroines are all slightly unconventional young women who are havin...

R.I.P. Terry Pratchett: A Reading List
Small Gods , by Terry Pratchett.  This book appears somewhere in the middle of Pratchett's
Discworld story and it's both a perennial favorite and a great entry point.
Or you could just start at the beginning with The Colour of Magic . Up to
