I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.
Groucho Marx (1890-1977)
Let me explain what goes on in my house. My mother has deemed that TV is one of the worst advances in technology to date. So basically I grew up reading instead of watching TV; things haven't changed much. In fact, we don't have cable and live in a valley, so I have no access to any TV programs in my house.
I felt the need to explain why I thought the quote fit in well with this entry, because I didn't think anyone else would understand the connection without it.
This break I have been going out of my mind trying to remember the name of this book, Summers at Castle Auburn. It would have been easy to figure out except this is what I remembered to go on: Its about this girl who goes to visit this castle every summer. She is in love with the Prince and he is engaged to her cousin or something. Then the Prince dies and this other guy becomes King - that guy's name was Kent. That was it. I know it isn't much and along with that, my descriptions were pretty limited.
I didn't even know where I had read this book or why, but for some reason I wanted to reread it and could not figure out what it was called. Luckily I managed to get help.
I had thought that I may have borrowed the book from one of my friends, then I limited it down to Vania. So the first chance I get I ask Vania for help in figuring out my plight. She gave it her best shot, but in the end it was Ali who saved me.
Ali was in the room and recognized my description. She then asked about the cover of the book, which thankfully I remembered after she mentioned it. She knew what the cover looked like after having to shelf the book at Schlow Library.
Isn't it amazing what you can figure what with a little to go on and the right help?
