For years, a work associate of my father gave special, limited-edition book sets as a thank you. This set has a custom book plate, jazz playlist on CD and foreword. I'm a sucker for this stuff. What a novel idea 📚💡

Is there anything better than giving a book you enjoyed to a friend (in this case, my wife) and hearing that it has kept her up reading WAY past bedtime two nights in a row?

To paint the scene, I was caught in a downpour, pulling a dolly full of things needed to introduce Litsy to the great people of the NYC Comic Con next week. No umbrella. Six more blocks to go. Crossing 6th Ave and everything slips off the dolly and spills to the street. Terrible mess but drew my attention this little toy boat on a similarly perilous journey. Just a #bookbroughttolife moment that turned my day around.

Charlie Is Broken! | Lauren Child

#24in48 - For books 7 and 8 (tagged book and "Not the Hippopotamus"), Jane refused having her picture taken. Too bad because it is bedtime, and not much is cuter than kids in PJs. THIS "Charlie" book....a long time fav of Jane's. I don't totally get it. The story is centered around a kid breaking his arm. Must be a developmental thing that is spot on for the toddler set. Pairing this book with cookies and cream was a solid choice.
