Picture a Day #341 – A Gift

For my birthday today, I received an honest-to-goodness hardcover book. I can’t remember the last time I read a hardcover book. I hardly know how to behave around it.

First, I think I’ll admire it for a while. I might carry it from room to room until I find a place to put it where I won’t forget to pick it up and read it. Perhaps I’ll write my name inside the cover.

My brand new book, with its crisp dust jacket, is Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver. When I first discovered this talented author, I read Pigs in Heaven. Then I went to a used book store and bought every novel that I could find by Ms. Kingsolver, in paperback. I read them all. The last one I finished was The Poisonwood Bible. That took me awhile.

Flight Behavior

Then I flitted among several other authors. But now I am back. I’m ready for a new adventure.

About J M Naszady

I am an observer of the world around me, a student of nature with the eyes of an artist, and a teacher. My interests have taken me into the water, across the meadow, through the forest, along the cliffs, and up the mountain. My latest journey has plunged me into the virtual world of words and images.
