A few weeks ago, I ran across a blog that set up a “challenge” I was too late to get on the challenge, but it sounded like fun so I thought we could try it here.
Participants pick 5 books that they would recommend to someone else, that you identified with or that tell something about you. You may but don’t have to tell us why you chose a book for your list. It can be any reading level. Then you pick 5 books from other people’s lists to read.
Something came up last week at a meeting, that nobody else had heard of, I must have had a strange childhood.
A friend said that she must have missed a cucumber when she was picking them from her garden the other day because you found a really really big, one.
I said when I was a kid; we used to take those, cut them in half lengthwise, and hollow them out and float them in the tub, as canoes, for toys.
