St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves by Karen Russell
St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves

In the wake of my husband's long illness I had lost all interest in reading for pleasure. One day a Daily Dose customer review of this book piqued my curiosity. What a treat for the senses! Each story is a solitary jewel in an individually crafted setting. The prose is lyrical, full of delicate surprises and indelible imagery. Best of all, for an omnivorous reader, it never was predictable. At no time can the reader 'see around the corner' and be prepared for what comes next. Well worthy of a wider audience!

The Robbins Process for Preserving Wood and Lumber from Mould, Decay and Destruction by Worms

This charming book, and its siblings, deserve to be reprinted - perhaps as a single volume suitable for gift-giving for the holidays (HINT HINT HINT!!!)! I used to buy the entire set as gifts for years and was appalled when I found they were out of print. I still have many dozens of favorite Grooks memorized, and quote them often. The world has changed since they were first penned and published, but the simple humorous lessons of Grooks are needed more than ever today!
