You folks are so much like I am. Barnes and Noble is almost a no, no for me. The Borders that I loved closed a few months ago to my sorrow.  There is always the Books a Million twenty minutes further south.

Today I did go into Barnes and Noble to spend my birthday gift card. I tried to behave, but did walk out spending $13.00 more than the card allowed, all on Civil War reading.  Hubby says I am "obsessed" but if I weren't reading Civil War history it would be something else I'd be reading because I am an unrepentent  book freak.

The posts about O Henry reminded me of a very funnt story of his we read years ago in high school. These two scalawags capture a child to hold for ransom, but he is so naughty, so unbearable, they set him free. I don't recall the details, but it seemed like such a funny story to me that I never forgot it.
