Book Review: Spilling the Beans on the Cat's Pajamas

Spilling the Beans on the Cat's Pajamas by Judy Parkinson

Thanks to the ladies at FSB for sending me another Reader's Digest title! I love these easy to read, filled-with-fun-facts books!

In this title, Parkinson is tackling all those popular expressions we all use, but tries to decode where they came from. The entries are short and to the point, but filled with great information, trivia and occasional stories that pertain. I found a LOT of expressions I use without really knowing the origin, or in some cases, the proper usage!

These titles are great for picking up and putting down, reading a few entries at a time - they tend to lose their "punch" if you just try to read it like a book. This is a great one for readers and speakers of all kinds! :-)
