  1. How are you liking Water for Elephants? You should check out Animal Vegetable Miracle if you liked M Pollan’s titles. I just finished “The Kid” for book club, an older title from Dan Savage but really fantastic! Happy reading, you are making librarians everywhere proud!

    • Really enjoying Water for Elephants! And Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is definitely on the to-read list… Next in the stack is Breakfast with Buddha and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, though the latter is a friends of the library purchase, and may be set aside for future library loans.
      The other day, we went to not one, not two, but three libraries in one afternoon. Love it!
      Will have to add The Kid on the list. Thanks, as always, for the great book recs!
