When I was a kid, both my Grandmas used to have Reader's Digest condensed books hanging around, and when I was staying with them and out of something to read, I'd dive into them. Sometimes I read something good (Pearl S. Buck's autobiography was a favorite). Most of the time they were treacly stores, gooey overly sweet concoctions. Perhaps a bit like divinity - icky sweet, but something nutty inside (sorry to all you divinity lovers out there). That's An Episode of Sparrows.

I'm so sorry if this was your favorite book of all time. It's not going to be mine. It's not going to be my least favorite book of all time. But it's not going to be my favorite either.
