A little list of books I have stayed up past my bedtime to keep reading.


Poison for Breakfast Hardcover by Lemony Snicket 

A super fun little read that takes the author out and about in search of his "killer." Written in the usual Lemony Snicket way


84, Charing Cross Road by Henene Hanff

A charming little book filled with the letters from a twenty-year correspondence between the American writer and author Henene Hanff and Frank Doel, chief buyer of Markes & Co antiquarian booksellers, located in London, England.


The Tender Bar A Memoir by J.R. Moehringer

The story recounts the author’s childhood and early adulthood growing up in Manhasset, New York, where he lived with his single mother in his grandfather’s house. As a boy, eagerly searching for a father figure, Moehringer accompanies his bartender uncle to the local town bar. There he meets a cast of characters—Bob the Cop, Cager, Stinky, Colt, Smelly, Jimbo, Fast Eddy, and Bobo—who take him under their wing and adopt him into their family of sorts. The memoir follows Moehringer into college at Yale University and through unsuccessful romantic relationships as well as the beginning of his career as a journalist. 


Finding the Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest by Suzanne Simard 

Simard's memoir describes the intersecting webs of her career and private life that brought her to rewrite not only the forestry canon but our understanding of nature itself. I am a complete sucker for any book that delves into the inner workings of natural systems and the creatures that inhabit those niches.


I Sold Andy Warhol (Too Soon) by Richard Polsky

Polsky leads the way through this explosive, short-lived period when the "art world" became the "art market." He delves into the behind-the-scenes politics of auctions, the shift in power away from galleries, and the search for affordable art in a rich man's playing field. This book is a hoot and one of the rare ones I stayed up late to ready!
