Bold Spirit: Helga Estby's Forgotten Walk Across Victorian America by Linda Lawrence Hunt
Bold Spirit: Helga Estby's Forgotten Walk Across Victorian America

Lora Walker, January 30, 2013

This book has stayed in my mind better than anything I read all year. Not only did it tell me about an astonishing achievement, it kept me thinking about the value of indomitable determination and also has made me look at how I consider what stories need to be told. This book generated some really moving and stimulating discussions among fellow readers.

Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise by Ruth Reichl
Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise

Reichl's food descriptions are so sensuous that I literally felt like I was tasting along with her to the point where I actually neglected eating and got low blood sugar. Her musings about identity and the lengths she went in order to conceal hers fascinated me and gave me plenty to think about. Her carbornara recipe is satisfying and simple. This book nourished me thoroughly.

The City of Dreaming Books by Walter Moers
The City of Dreaming Books

Lora Walker, January 12, 2008

A book about a city of books? My word, what could possibly be better for the ardent bibliophile? The title lured me in, but after standing there reading and grinning, I had to have it! This book cut right through my annual winter "ineffectual booklust" (too many interesting books to focus on just one). Warning that reading the book could prove dangerous is a great hook. You could compare the author to Tolkien, Douglas Adams and Lemony Snicket, but that would not be giving Moers credit for his own unique voice and wit. His illustrations are brilliant, too. Proof that the best of writing lurks in the children's section.
