I'm a sucker for beautiful photographs of fruits and vegetables.
This was one of the most beautiful calendars I had ever seen. Last year, Richard framed each of the 12 pictures...
and presented them to me for my birthday.
I loved this calendar so much that I had reused it year after year, just changing the dates each year in the little squares when the New Year arrived.
Every year the dates moved long one square until eventually, they caught up...
and it was correct again.
So I was perusing the "Recent Arrivals" shelf at the library and spotted this book...
with an appealing title and a beautiful picture of apricots. I couldn't resist. A book with a great title and a great picture on the cover had to be great. Right?
Well. It's a matter of opinion. Some people really liked it. Apparently, a lot of people. But not me.
So what's the matter with me? I dunno... I guess I am marching to my own little drummer because it didn't sit too well on my literary plate (I can't believe I just wrote that)
It's not a bad book; I just don't particularly like her style of writing. So I read about a third of it and took it back.
I am also a sucker for dogs and books about dogs. I got this book one for my birthday.
I loved it. I will probably read it again and then donate it to the library so that someone else can enjoy it. I am looking for a dog, but I don't think I'm going to get a Lab. He really was a very bad dog.
