Library.

This was a quick read.  I started at swim lessons this morning and finished in an hour or so this afternoon.  Short and sweet.  Funny, endearing, generous, humorous, self depricatng, and common sense wrapped up in lovely prose.  Interesting to read from the grandparent's perspective. 

Not perfect, but light and engaging.
