The Eclectic Authoress Recommends...

A Country, a Continent

Would any of you think it odd that most of my readers hail from a country that I do not live in?

With ever so much love,

The Eclectic Authoress Recommends...

14. Theodore Geisel, more commonly known as a popular, educated writer of children's books. A few include "The Cat in the Hat" and "The Star Bellied Sneeches". The first use of the word "nerd" was found in one of his works.

One Word, Two Syllables

Though I have already shared a recommendation for today, I must give you another, unofficial one: "Charade". It's a simply wonderful film with Audrey Hepburn (I am quite enjoying her lately). "Charade" is chock-full of spies (or agents), espionage, murder, false leads, and cat-eye sunglasses. A tip to the female protagonist: if one is being followed by those who want to kill you, perhaps leaving a certain yellow pea coat behind would be a wise choice.

13. "Sabrina"
(a movie featuring Audrey Hepburn.)

Spider-Man Sings

There is simply something about show tunes, be it "Fiddler on the Roof", "Hello Dolly", "Greece", or "The Amazing Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark". They read like a book, and tell you more about the characters than any aside ever could.

Yes, Mr. Vonnegut?

A local pizzeria has a pizza called the "Slaughterhouse Five". I'm not quite sure what's on it... Perhaps burned books, even if that is "Fahrenheit 451".
