Splash du Jour: Monday

If I get on a plane and see someone reading a good book, I like them instantly. I once flew all the way to Europe sitting next to somebody who was reading a book of mine while I was writing a book of mine, and there was never a word between us. It was fun...
-- John Irving --

Have a great Monday!

This must have been a flight full of quiet joy. If I would have been him, I think I would have asked the reader if he'd mind if I signed the book. That way he could have given some of his joy back. Am I too naiv?

You really like this guy, don't you? So do I.
Do you know he has a cottage in Georgian Bay? Let's go hunt him down this summer. I think he'd love to meet us.
