    9 out of 10 hearts!

    An Apple a Day by Caroline Taggart
    Release Date: March 3rd, 2011
    Publisher: Reader's Digest
    Page Count: 176
    Source: Received from FSB Media for review

    What Stephanie Thought: Ever wonder what classic proverbs, such as "out of sight, out of mind" mean and where they came from? They're petty little phrases that automatically come out of my mouth, but I've never really stopped to think what their literal definitions are.

    An Apple a Day not only defines these universally acknowledged words of wisdom, but also tells you how they came about, who uses them, when to use them, and their significance. There's no point in saying something you don't mean, and certainly no point in saying things you don't know what mean. We have begun to take the beautiful English language for granted because of how naturally it's thrown around, but this book helps reevaluate the importance of our sociable phrases and the history behind them.

    Stephanie Loves: "Out of sight, out of mind -- The idea that something is easily forgotten or dismissed as unimportant if it is not in our direct view." -- one of the proverbs that defines my life.

    Radical Rating: 9 hearts- One of my all-time favorites!
