How to Hepburn: Lessons on Living from Kate the Great --by Karen Karbo

How to Hepburn: Lessons on Living from Kate the Great --by Karen Karbo

Number of Pages: Unknown
Footnotes/Endnotes: Yes
Illustrations: No
Suitable for eReader: Depends—do you read end notes?

For a light, summer read, and if you're a fan of Kate Hepburn, this might be the book for you. Rainy Day can't tell you how many pages, because she read it on her phone, and Kindle seems to think you don't need page numbers. There are end notes, and Rainy Day was delighted when she got to the first one and discovered it was hot linked to the actual note – until she discovered she couldn't find a link to get back to the text, so she read the text then the notes at the end of the chapter.

Has Rainy Day ever told you how much she hates end notes? Especially chapter end notes?

The book is light and breezy, and guaranteed not to tax your brain, but also great fun. If you want the nitty gritty of her life, this may not be the book you want, but if you want to read something about the Great Kate that wasn't written by the Publicity Department or one of their minions, enjoy!

It seem obvious to Rainy Day that Mz Karbo genuinely liked the Great Kate, and though Rainy Day didn't really learn anything she hadn't already known, it was a delightful read for a summer's day.
