I owe you two books since I didn’t post yesterday. And I’m gonna tack on a little something extra because
it needs saying maybe the Freshly Pressed fairies will find the extra stuff more interesting than my book lust. Yes I’m playing to that crowd. Don’t act like you don’t.
So. Here’s an old favorite to precede Tuesday’s book: Two-kinds-of-people-Tuesday!!!
1. Those who realize that they’d be ahead of the music curve if they are astute when their Parental Unit’s are playing their ‘old school’ music.
2. Those who have to play catch up and act like they were into old school all along. I love Eric G. and Hakim! Love ’em! #FrontinFail
And Tuesday’s book:
The clouds beneath the sun : A novel
New York : Nan A. Talese/Doubleday, 2010
Now Ford takes us to Kenya in 1961. As a small plane carrying Natalie Nelson lands at a remote airstrip in the Serengeti, Natalie knows she’s run just about as far as she can from home. Trained as an archeologist, she accepted an invitation to be included in a famous excavating team, her first opportunity to escape England and the painful memories of her past. But before she can get her bearings, the dig is surrounded by controversy involving the local Masai people—and murder. Compounding the tension, Eleanor Deacon, friend of the Masai, who is leading the excavating mission, watches a rift grow between her two handsome sons. Natalie’s growing attraction to Jack Deacon soon becomes a passionate affair that turns dangerous when she must give evidence in a trial that could spark even more violence and turmoil.
And introducing…….(this is a drum roll, not points of ellipses because I know nerds are prickly about using more than 3 dots)…………Wisdom Wednesday’s!!!
And here it is:
No matter how pretty the packaging, or how much you like Piña Colada’s, don’t buy coconut scented bath/body products, they all smell like crayons. Go to Stalgreen’s or SmalMart and sniff one. Thank me later. Preferably via Paypal.
And Wednesday’s book:
