Four the Record - by Miranda Lambert
“On her new album, Four the Record, Lambert comes full-circle, staring down every woman-scorned cliché imaginable with brilliant, atypical attention to musical detail. Lambert’s latest songs capture duality from end to end…Nobody in popular music is more in command of their talent or career…” – Paul Pearson, SeattlePI.com
“Like a shard of glass hiding in shag carpet, Miranda Lambert has a voice that’s small and dangerous.” – Chris Richards, The Washington Post
Pride & Prejudice – by Jane Austen
A number of years ago, the BBC did a project called “The Big Read,” to discover the most popular books in the UK. Pride & Prejudice was #2, second only to JRR Tolkein’s The Lord of the Rings. While I loved the book the first time around, I recently revisited the witty and sharp love story of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy and remembered exactly why it is one of my own favorite books! Much of the humor is lost on a first time reader, and the subtleties of the language become clearer on a second read – you’ll find Mr. Bennett’s responses to his nagging wife a lot more amusing now than in the past! Although this is a popular book to read in high school, it is a classic that is worth reading again (and again!).
