Of Walking in Rain by Matt Love
Of Walking in Rain

West Linn Reader, July 22, 2013

What a delightful romp through the Oregon rain. This is not just for Oregonians, but for anyone who doesn't frown just because it's raining outside. The book is spunky, serious, fun, serious, and good. Read it. Enjoy it.

The Splendid Table's How to Eat Supper: Recipes, Stories, and Opinions from Public Radio's Award-Winning Food Show by Lynne Rossetto Kasper and Sally Swift
The Splendid Table's How to Eat Supper: Recipes, Stories, and Opinions from Public Radio's Award-Winning Food Show

West Linn Reader, February 3, 2009

My wife begged me for this book for Valentine's Day, and I'm happy to oblige. I merely typed in "Lynn" in Powell's search engine, and it was the first one to come up. I can't wait to give it to her.

What Is the What by Dave Eggers
What Is the What

West Linn Reader, August 18, 2008

This is one of the best books I have ever read, and I read all the time. Unforgetable. It haunts me even now, and it's been half a year (and many books) in between.

Lardner: Selected Stories (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics) by Ring Lardner
Lardner: Selected Stories (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics)

West Linn Reader, June 6, 2007

If you can get hold of a Ring Lardner story called "Old Folks' Christmas" (sometimes written as "Old Folks' Xmas") be sure to read it. It's delightful.

A Spot of Bother: A Novel by Mark Haddon
A Spot of Bother: A Novel

West Linn Reader, March 25, 2007

"The Curious Incident..." is one of the best books I've ever read; this one was a bit of a disappointment, although it was enjoyable. Maybe I was just expecting too much. This one is funny and tragic at the same time; it is not as compelling as "The Curious Incident." Read it--as long as you're not expecting a repeat experience after you have read the first one.
