It looked so enticing just sitting there...think of the projects just waiting to be done! I checked around but no one was staffing the return desk, so I moved on, to the kids' room and the next mountain of books to be read over and over. Driving home I asked myself why didn't I hunt someone down to check it in (& out!) for me? I could be busy felting herons right now, instead of lamenting the book that got away.
I can't say that any book has ever inspired such longing in me, much less on first sight. I sure hope that once I've got it in my hot little hands it will live up to my now gargantuan expectations. Why don't you pick up a copy, and let me know what you think?
