Nothing Like a Good Book…

What a day! No details, but it was NO FUN until… I got home, walked right past all the dirty dishes and the enormous mounds of laundry, pulled two of my own gigantic homemade chocolate chip cookies out of the freezer, read an email from a sweet editor letting me know that another one of my puppet plays has been accepted for another anthology (this one’s a holiday one) and then I opened up a new book… Al Capone Does My Shirts, by Gennifer Choldenko.

You know that feeling you get when you start reading a really good book, and you race through chapter one, two, three, and realize you CAN’T STOP it’s THAT good? Well, I have kids to pick up, so I have to stop. But I know what I’m doing tonight. And it ain’t the laundry.

Thanks, Ms. Choldenko! You saved my day.
