"Oh for a Book and a Shady Nook..."

"Diapers dragged the floor, salmonella dripped off thawing chicken breasts onto the counter and the phone rang out its throat as I eagerly read page after page of this middle-brow novel."

I found this on this morning. Here's hoping everyone out there has such a book absorbing their lives today!!

“Oh for a book and a shady nook,

Either indoors or out,

with the green leaves whispering overhead,

or the street cries all about.

Where I may read at all my ease

both of the new and old,

For a jolly good book whereon to look

is better to me than gold”

― John Wilson

I recently finished the book that was taking over my life and have yet to find another one to read. I'm so sad about that!

Lovely sentiments. I read through the comments about Seabiscuit and felt I could add nothing so came back here to a happier place without irate mothers where I can think of all the wonderful books I've read that might have had a naughty word or two, but now I can only remember the wonderful story, characters, and lessons learned. Seabiscuit?! Come on!
