British Eccentricity by Cindy Hulsey

I’ve always enjoyed British humor, which seems to trade on eccentricity in a way sometimes lacking in American humor.

A Sad State by Rebecca Howard

I think that Grumpy Cat may, in fact, be one of the great existential philosophers of our time.  I suspect that he has his finger (paw?) on the pulse of joy.  After all, things fall apart.  Life is suffering.  I’ve already lost about half of you, right?

Reading Restaurants by Laura Raphael

I didn’t think anyone could write a better “set in a restaurant” novel than Monica Ali’s In the Kitchen.

Snobbery by Cindy Hulsey

My sister has accused me of being a literary snob.  I suppose that may be true, but as a librarian, I know that every reader has her book, and every book its reader (to paraphrase S.R. Ranganathan).  I have always assumed that I don’t like romance novels, just as I’ve assumed I don’t like science fiction, horror, action/adventure, and many other genres.  But that’s like saying you don’t like Brussels sprouts without having ever tried them. (I love them, in case you’re wondering.)
