As you all may have remembered my baby (23yrs. old) graduated with his B.A in English. Both my boys read. I'm so glad of that. And now they have both been published, YEA! all those nights reading a bedtime story paid off. Anyway, I struggled with what to give this kid for his graduation present, I mean above and beyond the usual tuition and food and lodging and everything else he needed. And then Ms. Jenny (who makes lovely book marks, and does some awesome photography, and who I credit for helping me to be not freaked out at the cemetery) did a post with a poem by Robert Frost. I didn't know all those things about him. So on line I go to purchase a first edition for my graduate, BONUS! I found one at 84 Charring Cross. I needed to purchase this, it wasn't the upscale first edition I had hoped for, but it was...O.K. He was pleased. When he's off writing in silence, I'm always saying, " aspire to Pulitzer Prize kido" a joke around here. So when Ms. Jenny pointed out Mr. Frost, the Pulitzer Prize winner, I had to get it. THANK YOU Ms. Jenny ( I know, I know I should be calling you Mrs. since we share our wedding anniversary dates). AND the bonus of it coming from 84 Charring Cross. I always wanted to go shopping there, it's on the bucket list, but I dare say this is as close as I'll get. Love that book, it was just good.
So why is this Mailbox Monday, well simply because it's one of the best deliveries I've received of late.
What's up for reading this week,
Agatha Christie, audio with David Suchet (while I clean my studio)
Trust Your Eyes, Linwood Barclay
