Satellite Sisters Summer Reading

Satellite Sisters Summer Reading

We’re taking a break from our personal recommendations to share the wonderful Best Beachbag Books 2009 by the Satellite Sisters (one of whom is Pasadena’s own Lian Dolan). Personally, I’m running to Vroman’s right now to get The Help by Kathryn Stockett for my trip to the beaches of Lake Michigan next week, to celebrate [...]

The Bones

The Bones

Almost never do I have a great time reading a novel, talk it up to my husband, and then see him not only read it but love it. Such is the case with The Bones, which I discovered a couple of months ago when author Seth Greenland took part in a panel I attended called [...]

I Was Told There’d Be Cake

I Was Told There’d Be Cake

Colleen’s Fun Read for Summer I’ll pay any sum for a truly funny book, so to pay a mere $14 for the funniest book I’ve read in several years was a gift of grand proportions. Every single reviewer has compared young New York essayist Sloane Crosley — favorably — to David Sedaris, so I’m not [...]

Mel's Silly Reads for Summer
