Well, my vacation is over - somewhat. Cutting my vacation short, I arrived home just in time for a mandatory evacuation. Thankfully, I have my family, my pets (minus Fred and Wilma, the Venus Flytraps), and a copy of Catherynne M. Valente's, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (Feiwel and Friends 2011). A bit of Fairyland is refreshing about now! A review will follow later.
I also brought a copy of the adult nonfiction title, The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water by Charles Fishman (Free Press 2011). It's a fascinating and enjoyable read, but, right now, I've got enough water to worry about!
If you, too, are on the Northeastern seaboard, grab a good book, stay in and stay safe!
