The heat broke today and we are wearing sweatshirts. I am longing for a good book and a steep cup of coffee and so I think I may pack up my family tonight and hit the local book store. Oh yeah, we don’t have a local book store, we drive to the next town for that. Sigh. I want to read something good and heavy and contemplative but not terribly sad. So while “The Life of Pi” would be in I am again putting off “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”. For those of you not following along it’s on my list to read next and I started it twice but when not to far in I am reading about selling a four year old, I can’t read further without being so entirely consumed by anger and sadness that I am wondering why I am continuing. I assure you all I will get past it someday and read this book, however not today. I joined good reads and am leafing through what people are reading. It’s like Myspace for book critiques, so if that’s something that sounds fun to you join me over there I could use some more friends.
