The Box of Delights by John Masefield
The Box of Delights

frugalscholar, June 8, 2010

My father-in-law read this aloud to his children many years ago. It has long been unavailable in an unabridged edition. All the children (now in their 50s) wax rhapsodic about this. I can't wait to surprise them with this.

Quick Vegetarian Pleasures: More Than 175 Fast, Delicious, and Healthy Meatless Recipes by Jeanne Lemlin
Quick Vegetarian Pleasures: More Than 175 Fast, Delicious, and Healthy Meatless Recipes

frugalscholar, February 11, 2009

Lemlin is not as well-known as other vegetarian cookbook authors. But this is as good a book as you could hope for. Everything is good; everything is easy. When my daughter was teaching herself to cook, she used this book. The BEST!

Use What You Have Decorating by Lauri Ward
Use What You Have Decorating

frugalscholar, February 9, 2009

This has been around for a while, but, given the new financial realities, it's good to know how to use what you have. The pictures in the book are awful! But if you do what Ward says (rearrange furniture into U-shape, use pairs, etc), your room will look better. Truly worth owning.

Enough: True Measures of Money, Business, and Life by John Bogle
Enough: True Measures of Money, Business, and Life

frugalscholar, February 8, 2009

Not an absolute must-read, but a lovely book nonetheless. Bogle created the Vanguard Funds, whose shareholder-owned structure means more for investors and less for him. His ethics and good sense come through in this book, as he ponders what is "enough." Given the recent economic meltdown and the revelations about members of the financial industry, Bogle reminds us that there is ANOTHER way to do business and to live one's life.

Lark and Termite by Jayne Anne Phillips
Lark and Termite

frugalscholar, February 2, 2009

A beautiful book about family, history, loss, love ...this reminds me of the earlier Machine Dreams, which also centers on a sibling relationship. A moving, powerful book.
