Three Books

I read three books this morning:
  • Happiness is a Sad Song by Charles Schultz.
  • Frog Goes to Dinner by Mercer Mayer.
  • On Forgiveness by Jacques Derrida.

I liked Frog Goes to Dinner best. It had the fewest wo rds.

On Forgiveness was interesting, but overused the words "heterogeneous" and "hyperbolic" (why not say "different" and "exaggerated"?). I blame the translator.

Happiness is a Sad Song ends on a depressing note: "Happiness is knowing you've made it through one more day." Unlike the other pages, this one includes no accompanying cheery picture of Linus, Charlie, or Sally.
