Thank you Kelly!

When Kelly came to visit me she gave me a gift !  It was a gift card from Books-a-Million ..(I can’t imagine why she would think of a gift like that! *snort)  I went and looked around the store .Generally I find some “bargain books” to get but nothing appealed to me..so I looked in the rest of the store. (bad mistake lol)

I came across this authorized Biography of Roald Dahl, called Storyteller.  Most will remember him from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory or maybe  James and the Giant Peach (both of which I read to my kids when they were young).

What I remember most though is that for some time he was married to the actress Patricia Neal.  I knew he was with her when she had a nearly fatal stroke and with his guidance she came out of it much better than they thought she would.  Then unfortunately they split up.

Anyway I had to add a few dollars to the gift card but this was what I finally got with it.. so THANK YOU KELLY!!! 

I know I won’t get to it for a bit yet as I am only half way through Name of the Wind, which is over 600 pgs, and I have Wise Man’s Fear waiting, both for OUaT. I have a few Bio’s that I am getting antsy to read. 

…and so.. my TBR pile grows yet again!
