I’ve been re-reading favorite memoirs lately. Because (a) there’s nothing more comforting than re-reading a beloved book. You know exactly what world you’re sinking into; you know how everything’s going to turn out; you know you’re going to love it. And (b) I’d like to...

At my sister's suggestion, I've decided to create and share a list of books I'd recommend for a baby shower gift basket. The problem is, I'm having trouble choosing. I want selections that are at least a tiny bit unexpected (in other words, no Goodnight Moon), but stil...
