Yesterday was a cold and rainy day. A perfect day for placing pending projects on hold and curling up on the couch with a good book.
Earlier in the week I had urged The Kid off of the farm and into the big city where I secured a library card from the public library. It was well worth the $25 fee. (I'm a non-resident you see.) After all how many books can you buy in a year for $25?
I love browsing through libraries, touching worn copies of favorite reads and holding them in my hands. I have toyed with getting a Kindle or other electronic reader but something keeps holding me back. I guess I'm just old school when it comes to books.
One of my selections was Body Surfing by Anita Shreve, author of The Pilot's Wife. I spent the better part of yesterday with my nose firmly planted in the middle of the book lost in a world of family dynamics and deceit. It was the perfect way to spend a cold and dreary Friday.
Oh, and the book was good too.
