I love to read. I'm sucker for books that nobody loves, too. So is it any wonder I rescued a book from a free box at one of the yard sales on Saturday. As if that wasn't bad enough, this had been a library discard. It's called Adopted Jane.
I read it over the weekend and it's a sweet book. I think I'm going to keep it.
I also hit another sale and found a copy of Mastering The Art of French Cooking by Julia Child, Simone Beck, and Louisette Bertholle.
Of course, I probably would have NEVER bought it if I hadn't seen the movie Julie & Julia, which I've now seen at least ten times. The woman who sold it to me said, "Someone's going to be cooking." I said, "Not me. I only want to page through it because I saw the movie." She said, "I learned a lot from that movie." I said, "I learned NOT to crowd the mushrooms!" and we both laughed.
