cover to cover

Cover to cover this Saturday morning: Silent to the Bone by E.L. Konigsburg. Oh yes, the same Konigsburg who wrote From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.

Print from the wonderful Dallas Shaw on The Shiny Squirrel

I read this out loud to my sons about 10 years ago. They could read but still liked to be read to at bed time. I don't know who wanted to run away to the Met Museum more--me or them--when we were finished. Talk about every geek kid's fantasy! It's a good thing this book wasn't written when I was a little kid. I would have hopped the next Greyhound out of Roswell (besides driving or hitchhiking, the only way out of Roswell at the time). Literature has always informed not only my sense of adventure, but some of my riskier behavior!
