Today's Featured Quotation Book

Return of the Portable Curmudgeon
by Jon Winokur
This sequel to The Portable Curmudgeon is organized just like the first. There is a new and improved list of World Class Curmudgeons (3 pages this time). Lots of new quotes, organized by subject. The interviews and biographies include: Frank Zappa, Oscar Wilde, Dave Barry, and Carrie Fisher. There is no index, but that is just minor when you've spent a day of fun reading this book.

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.
