Ten Books You Should Read

I'm taking a wee bit of time out from my upside-down life to participate in a favourite weekly meme, Monday Listicles.

I'm able to do this because this week's list is about books!

Here are ten books you should read if you haven't already. 

Click on the covers to view book details at Amazon.com. Many of these titles are now in the public domain, which means you can get them for free. If you're looking for ideas for newer titles, visit Cookie's Book Club.

A very special guest post
from Cookie's Aunt

You may have noticed a sharp decline in the frequency of my posts of late. That's because life is happening here and I need to attend to it. In the meantime, I have a very special guest post for you today from my sister, otherwise known as Cookie's Aunt.

My sister - like myself, perhaps - does not always recognize her own talents. She is an accomplished seamstress. At least, that is my view, though she will scoff at the idea.

Well, just look at the graduation dress she made for her daughter and tell me I am wrong:

I mean, really! I am ever in awe of her skills with fabric and thread (the irony of which will become clear after reading my sister's story).

"And so without further gilding the lily and with no more ado..." (that's a quote from A Knight's Tale, a movie I highly recommend, by the way), I give you, Cookie's Aunt.
