In the kids' section, she pulls out Caldecott winner after Caldecott winner and tells me how much she "admires" that author and all the other books they've written, and can tell me all of the different illustrators she loves, etc. *beams* A shopgirl was shelving books near us and, after several minutes of my daughter telling me all of her favorite books and authors, beamed and nodded at me. We picked up some Jules Verne for The Boy, and he's happily traveling 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea right now. (How many of you are saying that like Phil Hartman? Hahaha.) Emily has some pretty books with great artwork that she's flipping through (not to mention a COOL pop up book on Prehistoric Sharks) and #2 is trucking through Madeline L'Engle.
And yes, their mother is reading cheesy pulp fiction about a brother and sister who fall in love. Ha. OH! And I purchased a steam cleaner today and I am SO EXCITED about cleaning my carpets. Which means the world is coming to an end. But new toys, wheeeee!!! *steam cleans our SOULS*
