A Blogger's First Book

Fred First, a blogger who writes

has just had a book published. It is titled:

"Slow Road Home - A Blue Ridge Book of Days"

I received my copy recently and have been slowly reading it, so as to prolong the pleasure. I think this book will be one I read again and again.

If you treasure language written in smooth, rolling cadence; if you value poetic phrases that make you think about something in a way you never have before, then please go to his web-site, read about the book, and order one for yourself.

NOTE: I am going to update the cat up a tree post shortly.

If you're reading him, that's all I need to know.

What a thrill to be part of such an exciting book launch.

I take it there's no "euphemisms" in his book.

Thanks for the "heads up" Judy...Floyd is the most interesting place, isn't it? So filled with Artists and Artisans...and so very many bloggers! It would be fun to join them on one of those Thursdays, wouldn't it?

I'll have to check out Floyd. Hope the cat up the tree is doing better today.

Michele sent me.

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately everything I've read this year has been dry and textbook-y. Alas. Only one more semester.

OMG! I didn't know he'd published! It's been several months since I stopped by his blog. I've always enjoyed his photos. Thanks for the heads up!
