"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."
--Author Christopher Benson

Someone on another blog mentioned having a BATHROOM BOOK, that is what this book has become for me, probably a good thing because it makes me laugh so hard..., well you know the end of that story.  Should have a review soon!  I just found the blog with a bathroom book, it is Kristi at Books and Needlepoint.   Be sure to check out her blog for her current reading while otherwise occupied.
