The Invention of Everything Else

Hi fellow bookworms 🙂

Things I’ve read lately: The Invention of Everything Else by Samantha Hunt, which is a terrific, imaginative story of the great inventor Tessla and a chambermaid at the Hotel New Yorker. It makes me have a new appreciation for the pigeons that hang out on the sidewalks of Manhattan. There’s also something Jonathan Safran Foerish about her writing.

The Manual of Detection by Jedediah Berry is the best mixture of entertaining and highly intelligent at the same time. Think Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy but more literary. It’s a ton of fun.
