Reading for Fun!
It was a regular old spring day at Powell's City of Books in Portland, Oregon. I was in the Blue Room (also known as the literature section) aimlessly browsing the shelves when I saw the cover of a book that simply said, "Maaaaargaux!! Reeeead meeee!!!" This book was The Dud Avocado by Elaine Dundy. I love avocados and the title was quirky. There was an art photo of a naked woman on the cover and she didn't look seductive or provocative, she was simply lying stomach down, her head up, eyes staring into the camera, like a thinking human being. When I read the back cover, I KNEW this book was for me. I read it and realized just how right I was.
