Sunday Summations

I'm going to tell you what I'm reading, but you can't laugh. You got it?

Okay, here it is....

Yup... that's it. Published in 1987. Best cover ever. I wish publishers would go back to creating art that reflects the story. The updated cover pales in comparison. Go ahead, get on Amazon and see what I mean. In any case, I'm enjoying it.

What?!

Yes, I know. I'm crazy, but I am really laughing out loud at this story, and I'm enjoying all the fun facts that the characters are learning on their scavenger hunt in New York City. Books like this are exactly why I wanted to move to NYC when I was a kid. This one, and before that, the Judy Blume's Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing had me fantasizing a life of metro adventure! Not to mention From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler... I mean, seriously, run away and hide at The Met?! I was all over that growing up.

As a matter of fact, I still hold onto that dream a little. And someday, maybe I'll get my chance to live in the city...shop at local markets, walk through Central Park,...and completely drain my life savings. LOL Just kidding!! By then, I'll be a multi-published author, making millions of dollars.

...if you're going to dream, dream big.

With Love,
Bethanne

  1. Hey, there's nothing wrong with reading -- or revisiting -- YA or teen fiction. I've never read Paula Danzinger, but I did reread "Mixed-up Files" earlier this year, and have several other YA titles to visit (or revisit) in Mount TBR.
