My mother hounded me forever to read Caddie Woodlawn and I wouldn't listen. Finally, I started it and couldn't put it down. Mom never forgets to remind me that she was right about this book...and I can't say a thing. She was completely right.
One of the things LL and I did while in college together was read this hilarious website called Things My Girlfriend and I Have Argued About. We laughed for days. I bought him this book as a gift...though I think I'm the only one whose yet to read the thing. While funny, I find the website funnier. Still a great book and one that always brings back how much fun we had.
I think we need to read this again..."The sink is blue, and we're not talking about it."
