Book love

(please accept apologies for out of focus picture, but this does belong in my kitchen, don't you think?)

Have I told you about Paperbook Swap? At first, I was reluctant. It appeared to be mainly stocked by trashy romance novels. (sorry, Grandma.) I have recently found that if you dig deep enough, you can find your share of treasures. (for free, I might add.) Since I am a bit of a book horder, I share books that are considered trashy to me and that are wanted by someone else. In turn, I choose books like this:
We also enjoy Mrs. Krauss' Open House For Butterflies. Some of my favorite lines:
A baby is to have a parade for.
You can always brag about what you don't have. Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah. You have a red wagon and I don't!

Cute, nonsensical out of the mouth of babes stuff, coupled with the artistry of Maurice Sendak. (You know, Where the Wild Things Are) Good ole' fashion fun and hours of silly giggling with the girls.

I'll have to take a look at Paperbook Swap. Thanks for that info! I am so impressed with your talented girls and their sewing projects!

Has Grandma joined yet? I kept telling her to! I've gotten a lot of cool books, too. Only I've ran out of books to swap...

I love that one comment about bragging! I'm sorry it just makes me giggle.
