The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society Pinky Pact!
Now say that 10 times fast.
On Monday I mentioned in my round up post that I have just obtained a copy of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer. I hum’d and haw’d about whether or not I should read it and to my surprise, the comments were unanimous in saying “Yes! Read it!” Sheila, however, took it one step further:
Guernsey is on my shelf waiting to be read yet. Maybe we should just pinky swear to both read it in September and that will get it off the shelf?
Obviously I had to take her up on it. So we’ve made a deal – we’ll both read Guernsey at some point during September. Of course we’re taking this seriously and had to make it official:
I solemnly swear that I am up to no good …er… will read Guernsey.
It seems like there should be some sort of punishment-type thing if one of us doesn’t read it, but we didn’t get that far in the planning. Suggestions? All I can say for now is that I wish I had spent more time in the sun this summer. Woah, Sheila are you tanned!
