Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In her fifth book, home guru Brown (a spunkier, perhaps more accessible Martha Stewart) delivers a powerful prescriptive for families afflicted with the "what-to-do-on-the-weekend" blues. Useful, imaginative ideas for the home enthusiast appear in all six chapters-"Helping Hands," "Neat Freak," "Secret Garden," "Around the World," "Great Outdoors," and "Holiday"-of this smartly styled, beautifully photographed, and enjoyable book. This New York Times syndicated columnist and Lifetime hostess has an engaging writing style as comfortable as an overstuffed sofa. Cleverly interwoven with anecdotes from Brown's idyllic childhood in Michigan, Weekends woos readers: each recipe, project, and idea (more than 100 in all) suits a particular mood and budget. Dig out those old magazines, take-out menus, and business cards and create a welcome package for new neighbors. Help the kids run a lemonade stand and use the proceeds to benefit the less fortunate. This book does what any good lifestyle book should do: instruct and entertain. Recommended for medium and large collections.-Steven G. Fullwood, NYPL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
