This is one of those CDs that strikes me as though I've heard it before, as though somewhere, whether in a movie or on TV, I've heard and loved these songs and even coveted them. I'm sure I haven't, but the songwriting and the easygoing rhythms are so pleasant to listen to that this disc has earned the first spot in my car's 6-disc changer and will likely be there for some time to come.
After several months of reading books with more than 300 pages and/or somewhat difficult themes (The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, The Shack, Three Cups of Tea), three of the ladies in my book club requested a "lighthearted read." Enter, The Daily Coyote.
It definitely fit the bill. I loved the story and the attendant photographs. Unfortunately, the book felt like it was written in a hurry (which, apparently, it was) and didn't have a lot of the details I wished for. In several places I found myself asking questions I had no hope of getting answers to and while the writing was good and the subject matter indisputably interesting, I wanted more. If you're looking for a quick read, though, pick it up.
As for me, I'm off to weightier subjects. After spending a couple of hours in my very favorite book store (the world's best bookstore, in my humble opinion), I found no less than three books I'm off to read over Spring Break, so I'll let you know what I think of them when I'm done.
