Flying first class  

Well, if you have to spend an entire day in an airplane (well,,,actually three airplanes), it's nice to fly first class.  Especially when you are feeling a little older than you did the day before.  (Yesterday, I picked up my first pair of PROGRESSIVE LENSES.)

tHE PERKS:

All the cookies you can eat.
Drinks, even before the plane takes off.
Room to stretch.
Time to read.  I've been saving K A Nuzum's A SMALL WHITE SCAR, for this flight.  By all accounts, it is wonderful.

If you need something wonderful to read this weekend, I just finished THE WEDNESDAY WARS, by Gary Schmidt.  It was one of those books I did not want to finish--it was a pleasure to read.  Great protag.  Lots of texture.  Vivid and meaningful sense of place.  I just found out that Gary is teaching at Hamline.  This weekend, I'll be selling many copies of a pb he wrote with Larry Kushner, IN GOD'S HANDS.  A wonderful retelling of an old tale.
