Today's Featured Quotation Book

The Portable Curmudgeon
by Jon Winokur
A nice little quote book, more for reading than reference. It is organized by subject, with lots of interviews with living curmudgeons and biographies of dead ones, and a one-page list of World Class Curmudgeons, including W. C. Fields, Groucho Marx, Dorothy Parker, Fran Lebowitz and Mike Royko. Highly recommended. [More Quotation Books for Reading]

Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable
by Adrian Room, Terry Pratchett, John Buchanan-Brown (Introduction)
This book provides the reference to the idiomatic sayings in our language. That sounds really boring, but it's incredibly useful. I receive many emails that ask the origin of some phrases such as "the whole nine yards." I'm not able to answer questions like that, but a book like this does, 90% of the time.
