Butterfly in The Sky, I Can Fly Twice as High..

“Take a Look, It’s in a book, a Reading Rainbow..”

Dear Olivia

Boy do you owe me 😂 I’ve always loved to read, but then Netflix and college came along and kidnapped my imagination and replaced it with reruns of the Office and Scrubs. #eaaaaagle #thatswhatshesaid

Then, you posted about your book and I was excited! I read and loved it (I know I’ve told you that much before). I couldn’t put it down. It was easier to fight my squirrel like tendency’s when I didn’t have to work as hard to paint the picture of the story in my head (not that it would have been that hard, if anything it was amazing how accurate and detailed your writing was).

Ive driven through Judson, shopped at IGA and briefly (and terribly I might add) worked at TR Inn.

When I finished the last page I found myself in denial. I didn’t want the story to end and to be honest I had begun to miss the “me time” that I set aside to read it. So in an attempt to fill the void you left I started to read the books I’ve bought over the years with the intent to read but hadn’t (because binge watching the office & Gilmore girls for the 80th time is a better use of my time, right?…wrong).

It’s been a little over a month since I finished your book & and in that time I’ve bought (thank goodness for used book stores) and read 18 books (and I have it on good authority that Santa is bringing me more).

I’ve also become slightly dependent on Starbucks, which is only indirectly your fault. You see, there’s something about meandering down book aisles with a cozy drink that seems perfect. (Even in Texas where it’s summer 80% of the time)

So, what I guess I’m trying to say is, Thank you for paying Netflix’s ransom and bringing my imagination back.

P.s. Where do I send my bill? These books and coffees are killing my bank account. 😂

If you want to read the book in question, Land Of The Jonah Fish Fry, you can find it here on Amazon! You won’t be disappointed!
