I Did It

I broke down and bought Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. I had been in the holding queue at the library in the 500s. Today, at Coles Bookstore, I noticed that it was 30 per cent off.

Last night, I couldn't sleep so I went searching in my immediate proximity for something to read that would put me to sleep. No offense meant to William Boyd, but I grabbed Brazzaville Beach.

Instead of putting me to sleep, of course, it kept me wide awake with anticipation until 4:30 a.m. or so. What a strong voice! The narration was gripping.

Again, no offense to Mr. Boyd, but I picked the paperback up at a local literacy council 25-cent sale table about 4 years or so ago.

Wow, that was a good find.
