Run, Run As Fast As You Can!

$2.20 isn’t enough to buy anything worthwhile at Borders. We looked on Saturday night when Joel decided that he needed a break from being indoors all day. At the end of a short walk through the Arbor Lakes’ shopping mall (?: it is like Easton, but in Minnesota), the warm glow of light from the bookstore drew us in…not to mention that I had that small dollar amount left on a gift card.
 
The human anatomy books tomes were too expensive.
We already had calendars.
The bargain books were on sale for a good reason.
Oragami for Dad? No. Joel said it was too cheap.
 
My eyes lit on a small hard cover as I searched the holiday display at the entrance to the children’s section.

You’re all familiar with tales of the gingerbread man and the runaway pancake, I’m sure. How many of you have read Lemony Snicket’s little book, though?
Except for the last sappy page that concludes that all religions are perfectly acceptable ways to happiness and contentment, I enjoyed his  Hanukkah story with illustrations (of course!).
Check it out:

… and try a batch of potato pancakes yourself!
