As Myra Jean sat proofreading, she suddenly noticed Bert Bascombe eyeing her speculatively. “I wonder,” he mused. “Could you write a monthly book column? …favorites at the lending library?”

“Of course,” she answered. Myra Jean visited Hull Crossing’s library in the Episcopal Church annex once a week, but she didn’t really know any of the volunteers who operated it. “Wouldn’t the librarian want to do that?”

“Walter Cates? He’s busy writing his memoirs.  Can I count on you?”

“I could start with children’s classics… the Secret Garden, the Wizard of Oz…”

“Perfect,” said Bert. “Sort of a trial balloon.”
