Blog by Hugh Hewitt, good book but not anything new for someone who reads 115 blogs a day and writes her own
A Dictionary of Euphemisms and Other Doubletalk, good but nowhere near as interesting as I was hoping.
A Noel Perrin Sampler, an American in Britain, ad nauseum
Thereby Hangs a Tale: Hundreds of Stories of Curious Word Origins, okay, but not terribly interesting
What to Read by Mickey Pearlman: divided into types of books “adult fairy tales, family feuds, don’t miss 19th C novels”
interesting, but I’m not going to read all those books and it makes me feel bad
An Introduction to Literary Criticism- very beginner book, which was not what I was hoping for
