Poor Correspondent

I have sadly slacked off on posting to this blog. I have been keeping all of my reviews over on Library Thing, as it seems easier.

I'll keep this blog for awhile until I decide what to do with it.

The House of Mirth


This is a novel of New York society at the turn of the twentieth century. As a novel of manners, I had in mind to compare it to Jane Austen's works. But Wharton's work is much more edgy, and her novel doesn't end with Austen's trademark "weddings all around."

Armadillo Rodeo

Bo the Armadillo goes to the rodeo. This is an enjoyable look at Texas with Miss Brett's typically gorgeous illustration.

Labor Day



The story of the first Labor Day in New York City in 1882. The illustrations are uninspiring, but the text is clear and easy to read.
