What do all these items share in common?
But I digress, back to the photo. When I scanned the poetry shelf in the children's section, I couldn't resist the lure of a new poetry book. Yes, that is the back of it you're seeing. Stop by tomorrow for Poetry Friday/Slice of Life for a pic of the front cover and my review.
As I headed for the checkout counter, I stopped to scan the nonfiction books. I like to tell my book group that I don't like nonfiction (most of them love it), but I adore memoir. And if I'm totally honest, perhaps because of their influence, I like nonfiction more than I used to. The Unwinding of the Miracle leaped off the table and into my hands. So I found myself purchasing two books I hadn't planned on and placing an order for the one I'd come to purchase.
And then I headed out the door. But as I reached my car, I remembered the chocolate I forgot to purchase. And so I headed back into the store to purchase my favorites, Chocolate Salted Caramels, from Island Treats (another local business). Because everyone knows that good chocolates and good books belong together!
