....and jot down the title of this little piece of heaven:
You wouldn't know it from first glance at the title, but this little gem is the absolute PERFECT gift for your favorite bibliophile this upcoming holiday season.
Chock full of fascinating tidbits about your favorite classics, authors and genre titles, A Reader's Respite couldn't pull our nose out of it until we finished the entire thing. In one sitting. And we still want to go back and read/reference parts of it again.
Example? Did you know that when author Dorothy Parker left her entire estate to Martin Luther King, Jr.? Playwright Lillian Hellman (The Little Foxes, remember?) was Parker's executrix and had a hissy fit when she found out about this. She took the estate to court, but ultimately lost. When King was assassinated, Dorothy's estate was passed on the NAACP.
Or that Mark Twain absolutely, positively HATED Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice?
So go get a jump on your holiday shopping.
And we'll expect to receive at least 20 copies of this for Christmas (*ahem*....we're just sayin').
