Four days off + no plans = lots of reading

Love Walked In, by Marisa de los Santos

This was another very quick, but very good, read. The book focuses on two characters, Cornelia and Clare. Cornelia is a grad-school dropout working as the manager of a coffee house. Clare is a bright, beautiful 11 year old whose mother is "sick" and abandons her. Through a mutual acquaintance (okay, more than a mutual acquaintance...Cornelia thinks he's the perfect man, Clare thinks he's a sorry excuse for a parent) the two hook up and change each others' lives. I loved the casual writing style...the book alternates between Cornelia and Clare, and Cornelia likes to talk to the reader. I also liked the upbeat tone, despite what happens in the story, and of course, the happy ending.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
