Comments for Books Bring People Together

Books Bring People Together:2/15/04

Act 1: My son and I went to the San Francisco Zoo today. At one point we met up with a crowd of mothers and kids who were watching a very brave peacock. He strutted his stuff for us, unphased by the throngs of people. As one of my son's favorite books is Tails which features a peacock ("Rainbow hued and shiny") I couldn't help but quote the book. The mother next to me said, "We have that book. In fact, we have three copies of it." To which I replied, "I feel like we have three copies given how often we read it!"

Act2: I'm currently reading Day of the Triffids and I posted a note about that on the Book Crossing Chit Chat forum. Later today I received a wonderful email from a man who loved reading the book with his now deceased wife. He thanked me for bringing back such happy memories and wished me an equally enjoyable read.

Apologies to Ira Glass and This American Life for the format of today's post.
