Happy Friday! Welcome to this week’s edition of the Friday Fifteen, in which I review five books in fifteen words or less. Since today marks the start of the 2012 Olympics, here’s a special UK-themed edition:
2. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Sisters, snobs, and misunderstandings. Austen’s characters deal with issues we tackle today. See also LBD.
3. Songs of Innocence and of Experience by William Blake
The Decemberists could probably make a great album out of these poems.
4. A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Sara Crewe keeps calm and carries on.
5. The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter
Sometimes it’s worth risking death to score some tasty veg.
