Books

I was at the bookstore the other day and there are just so many books I want to read. Mostly Blink, and The Artist's Way right now. I was looking through all the books I know I should read and want to read, and I started thinking about the books I read as a child. First the Jewish books:

Moral: stop complaining and enjoy what you have.










Lots of great stories in this one. I remember "Mazel and Shlimazel," most vividly.










Moral: umm... It could always be worse.








So then there are the classics:









Also let's take a good
look at Mr. Shel Silverstein...creepy.










Then the good ol' books:














Then the slightly less known:




















Damn, stupid blogger. This took too long to format. Anyway, read a kid book sometime soon. It's so easy to do and so refreshingly nice. Or if you want to read an adult kid book check out The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy by Tim Burton.

"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" was incredible! Lesser known? Anyone who hasn't read it needs to.

1) When I spent the post-Rosh Hashanah weekend at your house this fall, I read Meshka the Kvetch before bed. Fabulous.
2) The fact that a children's book exists called "It Could Always Be Worse" is just hilarious to me.
3) If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, Where the Wild Things Are, Harold and the Purple Crayon, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: GOLD.
4) My best friend from home was in a short play adaptation of The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy. Tim Burton is creeeeeeepy.
