Italy, Here I Come!

Good morning. I see little patches of blue through the pine trees this morning after Hanna went through during the night.

Yesterday was cloudy and foggy but I biked to the beach anyway and sat on the sand in my nifty seat reading Playing for Pizza by John Grisham for a couple hours.

This is a light-hearted tale of a failed, down-on-his-luck football player who ends up playing in Italy. It's not Grisham's usual but enjoyable, just the same. The food descriptions are the best part. It makes me want to visit Parma.

I have not read many books by this author but I enjoy watching the movies that the books get made into.

Hey I would love it if you would vote for me in the Suspense/Thriller Catergory. Thanks http://www.myfriendamysblog.com/2008/09/bbaw-awards-2008-voting-booth.html

With Gustav, our library closed and my middle son has no books to read. Went to Walgreens and picked up a few. Playing for Pizza by John Grisham was one. I don't know if he'll like it though.

It sounds simply delightful to me to be reading on a beach instead of freezing in Alberta.

I would love the descriptions of the food too-especially anything Italian. Makes me hungry just thinking about it.
