Welcome to the 2018 edition of the A to Z Blogging Challenge!

All through the month of April, the challenge asks us to blog every day (except Sundays), and to go through the alphabet A to Z, connecting our posts to the letter of each day.

My idea for this time, my 5th to participate, is to showcase a book or two each day, and provide a tiny bit of information about them. These will not be a full book review, but just saying what it is about, and if I liked the book or not.

These books are mostly books that I already have on my shelves, and have read, or are on my to be read stacks. There will be a very few of them that I don’t already own, or have read.

I will also post a quote each day that has something to say about books, or reading.

Hope you enjoy, and maybe see a book or a few that you might want to read, too.

“Found”, by Davy Rothbart, is a weirdly wonderful book. I have two of them.

The author has a penchant for finding all kinds of random things. He actively goes around looking for odd things, like notes, photos, cards, letters, and more. He finds things like this on the sidewalks, alleys, stores, and really everywhere he goes. Then, he created the “Found” magazine, and books, where he shows what he has found, and talks about finding them. Some are very strange, some are sad, and some are really funny.

I love doing this, myself. I find all kinds of things, too, and plan on making a scrapbook of them.

“Father Does Know Best”, by Lauren Chapin, is the memoir of the actress who played Kathy “Kitten” Anderson, on the TV sit-com, “Father Knows Best”. The series ran from 1954 through 1960. I’m pretty sure I watched every episode, as it was one of my favorite shows. It plays occasionally in re-runs.

The happy family portrayed in the TV series, was a far cry from her real life, where she was mentally, emotionally, and sexually abused. She also became a drug user, had failed marriages, and miscarriages. This is her very candid look back at her life and career.
