Two of my favorite things - books and food
First I stopped at Chapters (aka Indigo Books, though it will always be Chapters to me) and bought a book my friend Lisa had recommended. I'd been looking at it - mostly because I loved the cover - but hadn't yet bought it. Lisa's vote for made me buy it.
Having forgotten to bring lunch and the rain having started while I was out (without my umbrella), I went to the A&W next door to the bookstore - thus you see my Grilled Chicken, frosty cold Diet Coke, and Miss Peregrine's peculiar children.
I had never had a Grilled Chicken - my usual fare is a Mama Burger and fries. This time no fries and grilled chicken. The sandwich was terrific and I would definitely have that again.
As for Ransom Riggs, the author of Miss Peregrine, I'm definitely committed. I loved the first couple of chapters and will probably finish it tonight or tomorrow morning. I'll keep you posted.
