Cat Lovers Rejoice!
What Cat Is That?: All About Cats - Tish Rabe,Aristides Ruiz,Joe Mathieu

What Cat is That?  All About CATS by Tish Rabe introduces children to the wonderful world of cats.  With the Cat in the Hat as their guide, a little boy and girl set off on a journey around the world in a Kitty-Cat-Copter.  They meet lions in Kenya, tigers in Bangkok and so much more.  Along the way, the children learn numerous facts about cats.  

I absolutely loved this book!  The illustrations by Aristides Ruiz and Joe Mathieu pay homage to the great Dr. Seuss and are simply adorable.  I also found the facts in the book to be quite interesting.  I never knew that there is a breed of cat that actually likes to swim!  Or that a group of kittens is called a kindle.

I would highly recommend this book to readers and cat lovers of all ages.  Readers will delight in the whimsical illustrations and will walk away with an increased knowledge in all things cat.  There is even a glossary in the back of the book as well as a For Further Reading section which suggests other books about cats that readers might enjoy.  Check it out right meow!

The Idler's Glossary
The Idler's Glossary - Joshua Glenn,Mark Kingwell,Seth The introduction (which takes up approximately a quarter of the book) makes for a fairly good 6000 word essay on the topic, going significantly further than (and taking issue with) Bertrand Russell's [b:In Praise of Idleness|135742|In Praise of Idleness And Other Essays|Bertrand Russell|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1172071900s/135742.jpg|1314555] by insisting on a distinction between slacking (which is simply the work of avoiding work) and idling (a primary state by itself, not defined solely as the negation of work). However, the main body of the book (the glossary) is rather dull and tedious. Stick instead to [b:How to Be Idle|623922|How to Be Idle|Tom Hodgkinson|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1349057095s/623922.jpg|1768914] (by Tom Hodgkinson, to whom this book is dedicated.)

A Glossary of Literary Terms - M.H. Abrams I had to buy this book for some class many many moons ago, and I thought it would be old hat by now, what with it sitting gathering dust on the shelf over the years.

Surprisingly, though, after thinking I was just going to refresh my memory on little morsels like adynaton, hypozeugma, and all the many convoluted methods of scansion, I actually ended up spending more time with it than I had intended, led on by its interesting background commentary.

What makes it nice, is that it is more than just a dictionary of literary terms - it's actually quite interesting to read in addition, like a mini-mini encyclopedia.

Perhaps it deserves to be properly dusted off and to join the books on my right-hand side.
