Just finished The Little Prince. I can’t believe that I lived this long without reading this delightful little book. Such a beautiful book in it’s language and it’s illustrations. I think I’m officially the last person alive to read this one :p This is one that has lots for the quotes journal!

By the way, Debi totally cracked me up in my last post by mentioning that I actually wrote “If you’re offended by murder….this one may not be the one for you.” LOL! Let’s hope that humanity is still offended by murder, lol. I should say if reading a book about murders (serial-killer style) is not your thing, then you won’t like this one. LOL…glad that’s cleared up. Oh lord, we’ve all been awake too long :p

    Go Chris Go!

  2. In the Miso Soup sounds intriguing, even for those of us who are, definitely, offended by murder. LOL! I should re-read The Little Prince since the only time I read it was with my mom when I was little, and I remember thinking it was lame.

    Good job on all the reading! I am enjoying visiting everyone’s blogs to see what everyone is reading and I might just have to join in on the next Read-a-Thon. Happy Reading!
