Third Book of 2011: The Lover's Dictionary
I picked up this jewel at the LaSalle Branch. This book, written by David Levithan, is written in an alphabetical and epistolary style. The top of the page is a defined word (including which part of speech) rather than a date of the passage. The author weaves a word lesson, a definition, and a love story in the pages. I am so inspired by this book that I would like to design a college literary book based on Levithan's tome. I need to add this book to my permanent collection. All I can say is "brilliant!"
