Of Books And Scrapbooks

My daughter is back from her field trip. No points for guessing, I did not volunteer to be a chaperon. Instead, I threw a scrap booking party for the girls to journal their trip, when its still fresh in their memory.

Its been a week of books, good books to be specific. I did not want the book, "The Help" to end. Read it as slowly as I could, cherishing every word.

Cleave transitions seamlessly between humor and serious issues in the "Little Bee". However I did not like the fact that the author/publishing requests the readers not to reveal the story. If I can convey what's in that book in 3-4 sentences, I wonder what's the point in writing the book in the first place?

It was a good read and the book would would have done quite well, even with out adding that statement on the book cover.

Happy Mother's Day
