Comments Two Alone

Whistling for the ElephantsTwo Alone: 05/30/05

While Sean took his nap I took a couple hours to enjoy an easy read—Two Alone by Sandra Brown. The hook has been used many times before: beautiful woman and cynical man find themselves stranded and must work together to survive and in the process end up falling in love. The book has two things going for it, it's short and the bulk of the book is focused on how they survive, not on how they fall in love. It's only in the last fifty pages or so when they have been rescued that the book becomes a full fledged romance novel. It was the perfect quick read for a hot afternoon.

Z is for...

When we were at the park (the one with the dinosaur) Sean started collecting sticks that looked like letters to him. He found a Y, an I, an L, and a K. When we were on our way home he told me about his sticks: "Y is for Yarn, I is for Ice, L is for Lion, K is for Keys and finally... Z is for 'all gone letters.'" He puts the cutest emphasis on "and finally."
