I had the day off yesterday and managed to devote it to my family and my WiP - in that order. No chores, no housework, no office calls - and it was fabulous! As a matter of fact, could we have every Monday off? Anyone?
I had promised my daughter I would buy her a few books (the Bear series by Becker/Denton is one of her favorites) so I took her to the nearest bookstore. After the closure of both of our local Barnes and Noble and Borders, that trip involved a 25 block walk up on Broadway - but definitely worth it.
Many others had the same idea for their day off; the aisles were busy with crawling babies, babbling toddlers, and eager little readers. Of course I could not leave without satisfying my need for a new good read and after my daughter made her selection I started browsing. I ended up with three books myself - here is the one I started reading last night:
And I did have a hard time putting it down.
Have you read it?
