Reading Other People's Mail

Letters of Note by Shaun UsherYou can learn a lot by reading other people's mail. But before you go violating postal law, why not read Letters of Note: an Eclectic Collection of Correspondence Deserving of a Wider Audience by Shaun Usher. Who wouldn't be interested in reading the letters of Abraham Lincoln, Marge Simpson, Mozart, and David Bowie? Oh, and there are two big volumes of this book so far!

The Bassoon King

The Bassoon King by Rainn WilsonIf the title doesn't draw your attention, then maybe the foreword by Dwight Schrute will. I just added to my to-read list The Bassoon King: My Life in Art, Faith, and Idiocy by Rainn Wilson.

We'll Always Have...

I recently saw a new book that was added to the HCPL collection.  The title caught my attention because it references one of my all-time favorite movies.  In fact, I consider it one of those perfect films, where everything works together.  Story, setting, performances, direction.  It’s one that I’ve seen over and over again and I still find myself drawn to it.

The book is We’ll Always Have Casablanca by Noah Isenberg.
