Betty reminded me that I was next up to pick a book, and I'd been kind of dithering about what to read. We've done lots of American South, so I think we ought to leave that alone for a bit. How about something brand-new? Julie D. recommends Major Pettigrew's Last Stand. Anyone up for reading a new book? This sounds like just the sort of thing I'd like right now -- I'm kind of supposed to be on a quasi-bed rest until next week (it don't mean anything, I think, but the midwife wants me to put up my feet until next Friday, which will be 36 weeks) so something charming would be ideal.
