The book this week is Let’s Bring Back by Lesley M. M. Blume. It is basically a list of things (words, customs, people, etc.) that have gone out of fashion that the author thinks should have a comeback. I’m only in the Bs but it’s interesting so far and I’ve even learned a thing or two.

The sentence:

She used to own Hollywood, and these days, all people can remember about her is the vague phrase “Bette Davis eyes” – the title of a grating song written in the 1980s that wasn’t even about Bette Davis.

It does seem unfair.

I remember that song very well. Have to look into its roots now.
Thanks for participating!
