Day 63 of 365, Brandie, Books & Me

These are our book selections for the month of March.  Brandie suggests "A Bargain for Frances" and my featured reading selection is "Amerlia Bedelia".   :)

Brandie and I went to Barnes & Nobles tonight.  Terry went to watch a baseball game and I wanted to go to the book store.  I knew just who to call to ask if she would accompany me, my niece Brandilyn.   Isn't that the prettiest name?  I love it.  Anyway, I knew that she would jump at the chance to go to Barnes & Nobles.  She is a very, well read 10th grader.  When, she picked up an interest in reading somewhere around the 4th grade, I believe, she became an avid little reader.  I am quite impressed with the breadth of literature that she is familiar with.  And, her acquintance with these works are not necessarily from required reading.  Brandie and I have a common love for books.   

As customary and reasonable, one must slide over to the in-house Starbucks to sip a little indulgence, all the while, perusing their new reading material.  Oh, yeah...!  We did a snooty little 'cheers' clink with the bottom edge of our drink cups then slurped it up!  She ordered a Venti Mocha Frappa and I had Pomegranate Cherry Juice.  We sat at a table by the window and put our heads together as we read through the 225 Baton Rouge circular.  I noticed the dates are listed for Sunday in the Park beginning April 11.  yay!  I am planning to go to some of those concerts in the park. 

We finished our drinks and decided to make one last swing through the store.  Then, I remembered that I had my little Panasonic Lumix point & shoot in my purse.  Of course, immediate ideas popped in my head, I would say,..."hey Brandie, go over here.. go over there..."  She is such a good sport!  Instead of Where's Waldo?  We can play Where's Brandie?
Thanks to my sweet niece for coming to B&N with me and being such a great book buddy.
