|Well, Smushy, I have to admit that I did not read the entire book. As far as I read, I found it kind of predictable. I probably should have finished it! It was kind of like when The Giver by Lois Lowry won the Newbery. There was all this big whoop, but I thought the same idea had been done better years ago by Madeleine L'Engle in A Wrinkle in Time.
We LOVE travel writing! Bill Bryson, Paul Theroux, Michael Palin, a bunch more. There is an Armchair Travel thread around here somewhere, I think.
P.S. We are going to be away for a week down at Grandma's (a week if all goes well with Minerva), so we will only have our little phone to keep up with everyone!
