A couple of weeks ago, I passed an independent book store that looked really cute. I thought I should support it, even though I knew the price would be higher. I probably just bought a card, but I looked around and found a number of interesting things. I settled on a book called Why Manners Matter, because I have been thinking about this topic for quite some time and because it was less than $15 (I got the paperback version). Sadly, I'm not enjoying it much. It's actually a little boring.
While I was there, though, I flipped through Picasso and the Girl with the Ponytail and I liked that quite a bit. Might get that for the nieces and nephews at a later date.
