And to add to the joy -- I had the great fortune to meet her recently, and was quite happy to find her a kindred spirit!

I am grateful for the awesome experience of bonding with my nephew over a book recently...what joy it was to be able to talk about our favorite scenes and characters and to laugh over a shared good experience. The book is from a series called THE PENDERWICKS by Jeanne Birdsall. It's a great old-fashioned story, the kind that makes you smile like Anne of Green Gables and Mary Lennox used to, but somehow feels fresh and alive and not stale or stuffy. I'm thankful there's someone out there today writing simple and true stories like this! There isn't an ounce of David Letterman to be found in it... (Oliver Stone once told me that the problem with writers today is that they all have too much David Letterman in their souls:)
