Spent much of this afternoon rocking a sleeping baby and finishing The Mysterious Benedict Society. Loved loved loved it. But then you knew that already.

We’ve already got the sequel on reserve at the library.

Funny aside: Scott was tickled that the book’s cool cover art was done by Carson Ellis, the same person who did the jacket art for his Decemberists CD. Connections!

  1. Isn’t it wonderful how sleeping babies NEED to be rocked, and you just have to keep reading?

  2. I loved that one too! Let us know how the sequel is. I’ve heard mixed reviews so I’d love to hear what you think…
