Gotta Listen...

This is an amazing arrangement that I just came across. It is Jon Schmidt. I love his reason for doing this arrangement...for his 7-year-old daughter. My 8-year-old daughter LOVES the song Love Story and so do I. I also love Viva La Vida by Coldplay and he meshes the two beautifully! It just gave me goosebumps listening to this arrangement. Definitely going to get the download for my iPod.

I just wanted to share!

Tap, tap, tap...Is this thing on?

Okay, I am not sure beyond family who (if anyone) actually reads anything I sporadically write here, but if you do, I need some fun advice.

I am in need of a few good books to read this summer. I have my copy of Persuasion by Jane Austen and a copy of the Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman but those two are a bit deeply written and will take some wading through to read. What I am looking for is a good read that is not smut or cheap romance but that is fun yet with some substance. You can view my Good Reads on the side bar to see some of the more recent books I have read.

Anyway, any suggestions are appreciated!
