a book that I've been hearing is a good one. It is entitled The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. See? Even the title is intriguing! I'm only to page 13, but I had to share this excerpt from what I've read so far:
I wonder how the book got to Guernsey? Perhaps there is some secret sort of homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers. How delightful if that were true. That's why I love reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you onto another book, and another bit there will lead you onto a third book. It's geometrically progressive --- all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment.
Now, don't you want to read more??? I know I do and I know I will be reading this tonight. Probably way too late and will go to work tired tomorrow. Tired but happy because I got to spend some quality time with a book.
