Hypocrite in a Pouffy White Dress by Susan Jane Gilman
Yesterday, David and I found a new bookstore in Peninsula called the Blue Heron Bookstore. It used to be a mangy antique store and it has been fixed up with beautiful wooden shelves and a great display area with a fireplace and big chairs. It has a two story tree house in the kids bookroom. But the store is small, and independent and has a feel of warmth and luxury. I saw this book on a display stand and it looked like something I should get to remember our stop at this lovely store by. Plus, it had a recommendation blurb on the cover from Frank McCourt. I started it this morning and have not put it down. I have been laughing out loud. David has already had to listen to me read enough of it that he is advising I finish it quickly since he feels like he is living with the narrator. I love it.
