Booking Through Thursday (10 September)

Booking Through Thursday this week is, “What’s the most informative book you’ve read recently?”

I have to giggle a little bit, because the answer to this question is not what I thought it would be. I was thinking I’d go to the archives and I’d see one of those non-fiction books I read so infrequently, but actually, the most recent informative book I’ve read is… B is for Beer, a silly novel written in a children’s style about a five-year-old who becomes intrigued by beer. The author throws a lot of facts about beer and beer-making into the story, capped off by a drunk brewery tour! I was constantly turning to Scott and saying things like, “Did you know that there are 39 billion gallons of beer sold every year?” So informative!

So… yeah! Moral of the story is, sometimes you learn more things from children’s books than you do from literary criticism

    what a great pick!

    I once owned a whole series of books I bought for my kids called “What do you do when your mom says . . .” The series had one book for each of the 30 or so topics covered. For example:

    Clean Your Room
    Do your homework
    do something besides watch TV
    Write your grandparents

    They were very informative, and they worked too!
