It's a Book

Susan Notes:

Joy is sharing pleasure in a book.

Here is a trailer that's fun, but the book itself is more fun.

by Cindy Lutenbacher

Tonight, Ro and I went to one of our fave indie bookstores to hear and
support a 90-year old man reading from his novel (which was utterly
wonderful!), and as I was hunkering around the front of the store, I picked
up IT'S A BOOK, and, like you, laughed out loud. And bought it for my
lifelong pal Michele, who, despite her facility with computers, shares my
Luddite tendencies when it comes to books.

Ro and I agreed that Michele's
unconscious probably wrote it because it sounds exactly like her. We
dropped it off on our way home, and here's Michele's e-response:

"And furthermore: I love It's a Book more than life. The fact that a jackass
figures prominently in this story has caused me no end of delight. This one
will never sit on a shelf. It will go wherever I go. Million thanks for the
perfectest surprise gift EVER."

I may have to return to buy every copy...
