12. Heavy Words Lightly Thrown: The reason behind the rhyme/Chris Roberts

A book about the probable meanings behind various nursery rhymes. Contains a slang dictionary for those of us that aren't English. I liked this book it was funny and silly. Not high scholarship but the author is very knowledgeable. And some of these things we will never really know so it was good to see a few theories.

13. The Greatest Show on Earth/Richard Dawkins

The first book that Dawkins has written about the whole of the evidence for evolution. His other books deal all in some facet of or particular point of evolution. I haven't read all of his books but he does refer to them often. Highly recommended.

14. A Touch of Dead/Charlaine Harris

I enjoyed this collection of short stories more than I did many of the books themselves. I am a big fan of the short story, though. It had been suggested that some of these would fill some of the gaps in between books and in histories of esp. the fairies. I didn't really find that to be the case but an enjoyable read.

15. I was told there'd be cake/Sloane Crosley

A collection of short essays about the authors life. Sometimes amusing. Mostly boring.
