Book Report/The Polysyllabic Spree

The Polysyllabic Spree
by Nick Hornby
nonfiction essays, 2004
finished, 3/25/08

First of all, can you see how my chair kind of continues the outline of his head with even the same color!

This is a sort of book journal, or book blog about what Mr Hornby bought and read for over a year. I like Nick Hornby. I like his energy and his passion. I did get one idea for a book I'd like to read (George and Sam: Autism In The Family by Charlotte Moore) but mostly it was about books I had no interest in. I kept going because his writing is so good, but I think mostly I'm not a fan of books about books.

  1. How clever of your chair and the book to work together like that! :) I love the blue, blue sky in previous photos - we are not having an abundance of sun here so very nice to get it in Blogland. Very cool to have those beautiful eggs - if I were closer to you I'd offer to buy the ones you can't use.

  2. That's pretty neat the way the pattern in your chair finishes the head! :)

  3. I just thought it was so funny after I saw the pic. :<) Hope you get more sun, Kris, and that your snow goes soon, Nancy.

  4. I guess we can't all love it, right? And there's nothing wrong with that. :-)

  5. Lezlie, I think it was more the subject matter than anything. I loved Hornby's Fever Pitch and High Fidelity and can't praise them enough.

  6. I really want to read High Fidelity. I keep hearing such great things about it.

  7. Lezlie, I think what I love so much about NH is his passion. Whether he is writing about books or music or soccer, his involvement in the subject is total and he is so enthusiastic.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
