I'm always thrilled when I discover a writer whose work I've never explored. One night the guest on The Daily Show was a very funny Mary Roach. I picked up one of her books. How I've missed her wry and delightful insights into the world might have to do with my not having read a Reader's Digest in I can't even fathom. Or read her books like Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers or Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife.
(Thinking my summer reading list just got bigger.)
I've just finished My Planet - Finding Humor in the Oddest Places filled with short, concise three page essays. Hoot and hollering fun. Well, maybe not that loud. But giggling a definite Yes! The kind where people look at you and you can only giggle more. Too fun to share.
With a mind full of giggles, I set out on my April Scavenger Hunt brought you by Made With Love.
The April List:
Whatever You Want
Here we go.
Whatever I Want
Okay, wonder what the May list will bring.
