Mary Ann’s December Recommendation

I Used to Know That. Literature: Inside Stories of Famous Authors, Classic Characters, Unforgettable Phrases, and Unanticipated Endings by C. Alan Jorce and Sarah Janssen

I used to know that“[This book is] one of a series that includes History, General Science, and the Civil War.  This one contains facts about authors from Homer to J.K. Rowling.  The entries, with chapter headings like “Shot Out of a Cannon” and “Stranger Than Fiction” are a page or shorter, so it’s perfect for browsing.  Many facts give insight into the work and life of familiar authors”.
