Trying to find something a little more entertaining and still on my summer reading list. Poisonwood Bible here I come! The first few chapters are poetic enough. Kingsolver uses beautiful prose to describe the lives of her characters in rather vague and ambiguous terms. This novel was about to have the same fate as C & R until she mentioned bringing boxed cake mixes to the Congo. Funny enough...I had a boxed cake mix in my pantry! Oh how my mind wandered. Lemon Supreme. So instead of reading this afternoon I have been baking lemon cupcakes with strawberry butter cream icing!!!! Ahhh. Life is worth living once more but I promise you don't want to be here when I come down from this sugar high. Don't you just love how literature can inspire?
