I checked this book out on tape from the library. I thought it was a fun read. It was a great surprise to find another just for fun writer to enjoy once in awhile. I have read all the Fannie Flaggs and the Mave Binchy and the Rosamonde Pilcher they have at the library. Suggestions anyone?
I also just finished reading Woodrow Wilson by Louis Auchincloss. The other things I have read by this author, have been short stories and he continues to be brief here so if you just want a really quick overview of this president, this may be the book for you. I am still thinking about a point where the author says that our two most famous/ popular presidents took opposite views on self-determination. Interesting thought. Is this just a given, my gut wants to fight about it. :)
A couple of years ago, Jenni gave Charity the book I Will Never Not Ever Eat A Tomato. It has been Charity's favorite book three years running. She loves it! So, when we were in a book store in Sun Valley, we were excited to see Utterly Me, Clarice Bean, which is hilarious. Charity is getting The Princess and the Pea for Christmas... Ssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... don't tell. Watch for our Christams card which is our version of Lauren Child's delightful mixed media. Thanks Jenni, you always know what we're going to like! :)
