This book has been on my "to read" list for a long time now-actually a really long time now!Have you ever gone to the grocery store for some "real" food such as bread, rice, etc. and just didn't get there right away because you stopped in the candy, soda, danish section first? You were distracted by the glitz, the glam of sugar! This is true of books too. This book will be a wonderful book to read, I just know it! It will be the bread, the rice of reading. I've stayed too long in the candy section of reading-candy on top of the danish with the soda in the other hand! Ah, how tempting a good piece of short fiction is! The "get-away-from-it-all" of a paperback mystery is wonderful! It's lovely, but I know that I could use more non fiction in my life and so look forward to reading this soon.
