  1. In my work bag I currently have (hang on a sec while I look) two books, one kindle, and one half completed times crossword puzzle. I also just returned from a trip to Sicily, where I brought my kindle and seven untouched crossword puzzles. I won't lie. I was happy to have my kindle on this trip, more for the sake of having the extra space to bring home cheese, salami, and lemoncello, than because I am no longer in love with the way the pages of a printed book smell. I am in love with the weight and smell of printed books. And I love the convienence of being able to carry so many options with only one hand. I don't really even need a bag. It's not an either or situation for me. I'm reading "The Stone Boudoir" in printed form because it's about discovering the hidden treasures of Sicily, and it feels right to have those sorts of stories in my hands. And I care about buying books and supporting the independent store, which is why i still do both. But I also read from five different books on two very long plane rides thanks to the portability of my kindle. And now I have authentic sicilian lemoncello to drink while I pick up my next book. Just some musings.

  2. You're really just trying to make me jealous about your trip to Sicily and the lemoncello aren't you?If I ever go abroad again, looks like I may have to consider one of them electronic, handheld, reading device thingys. Sigh.

Book review time! 
The Story of Diva and Flea
By Mo Willems + Tony DiTerlizzi
Loved this as a read-aloud for little ones that can sit still for longer picture books, or, as it's a beginning chapter book, great for ages 6-8 who are learning how to read more confidently by themselves.

#poemaday #nationalpoetrymonth #haiku #kerouac #wildlyread #poem #poetry First day of full-time hours in my new job as a bookseller for an independent bookstore, and it's staff pick time! I fell in love with this book years ago, before the movie was even a dream. Though I'm not a fan of the movie tie-in cover, I'll gladly place this book in readers' hands. . . .
