I was sitting by the pool today listening to my children protest the rumbling thunder that was keeping them out of the pool and somehow I managed to read the last 15 pages of my book. That makes 33.
I have learned something about myself through this process. I am drawn to books that are full of imagery. Under the Tuscan Sun (yes the Diane Lane movie) was one of these books. By the way, the movie was not at all "based" on the book. The story line is not even remotely the same except for the fact that it was a newly divorced woman renovating a Tuscan villa while learning to cook authentically Italian. As for all the romance? Yeah, not so much.
Books and recipes are not paint with water books. They colors aren't already there. You have use your own paints and brushes.
