It's not about reading to impress anyone else.  It's about reading for the sheer enjoyment of it all...

Somewhere Over The Rainbow...

Finding Dorothy - Elizabeth Letts

Finally finished this one today (it's been sitting patiently waiting for me to finish it since March!). Author Letts mentions in her Afterword that The Wizard of Oz aired every year on network television from 1956 to 1980. Those of us who grew up in that time frame remember well how we looked forward to it each time. The minute I finished this book I brought up Judy Garland on YouTube singing "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" in the movie. If you have younguns - don't let them escape childhood without knowledge of this film. And have them read L.Frank Baum's book, too - the differences from the film are many, but takes away none of the magic from either.
