Daily Life in 18th Century England by Kirstin Olsen
Daily Life in 18th-Century England - Kirstin Olsen

This is a textbook, but it's a very readable one and quite interesting if you are curious about the subject, without the academic pretension or dryness that can drag works down. Chapters cover subjects such as food and drink, clothing, entertainment, politics, religion, education, race and class, family relationships, the economy, the state of science, and more. The second edition reorganizes the chapters and expands a few of them, as well as including more primary documents, but the short, clearly labeled chapters of the first edition are handy if you want to skip around and read it in bite-sized chunks.

A couple of fun facts: clocks with minute hands were a new thing in the 18th century (previously they only had hour hands), and non-poor people were mortally offended by poor people keeping dogs.

I wish I could find such cogent, detailed and accessible studies of other parts of the world during this time period, but if you're interested in England, Olsen has you covered.

Daily Wisdom: "That Still Small Voice" by James Daniels
Daily Wisdom: "That Small Still Voice" - James V Daniels

Daily Wisdom: "That Still Small Voice" by James Daniels is a good how-to book about finding inner peace.

 

I received a complimentary Kindle copy in an Amazon promotion. That did not change my opinion for this review. I gave it four stars.

 

"Learn that being happy is a choice that we all have. Learn how to keep your peace and be happy with the every day challenges of life."

Babbitt
Babbit - Sinclair Lewis

I am reading Sinclair Lewis after Min Jin Lee shared her passion for his writing with us at our Library Author lunch. I don't remember reading any of his books, but if I did, it was in the blur of high school required reading, so I am having another go at these. This one reminded me of the Cheever stories I was obsessed with years ago; perfectly capturing the details of ordinary lives, and rendering them memorable.
