Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

3 books

Posted on: July 16, 2006

I’m on a roll with three really fun reads this week:

Triangle: A Novel by Katharine Weber
This one is our upcoming bookclub book and so far everyone has really enjoyed it. It features the granddaughter of the last survivor of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory and her really great composer boyfriend as they piece together some of what happened to her grandmother. I’m going to have to pass this one along to Mom and to Aunt Susan, who I know is interested in books about that fire.

Literacy and Longing in L.A. by Jennifer Kaufman and Karen Mack
Mom read this one when she was out here and I also loved it. (Lisa – I’ve left it on your desk for you) Booklist calls it “Book lust meets chick lit in this tale of a love-challenged bookworm.” I mean really, how could we resist?

And a trip to my favorite bookstore in DC, Politics and Prose, yielded The Wonder Spot by Melissa Bank (author of The Girls’ Guide to Hunting and Fishing) which I read on the plane home today. I loved Sophie and totally identify with her self-description of being a “solid trying to do a liquid’s job” and she was even a Hebrew-school dropout like me… Good, quick chick-lit read.
