I love when life throws me some major (at least in my opinion) coincidences. I was thinking about one today. The year that Oprah selected East of Eden as her book for her book club, I joined the band wagon and bought it. I LOVED it. It's still one of my favorite books ever.

The summer I was reading it John and I went to visit my grandmother, Mama T. She was showing us some old pictures. There was a picture of one of her cousins. He was reading. She said that he read constantly. He would often go into his bedroom on a Friday night with a stack of books and read the weekend away.

I was curious to see what he was reading in that picture so I looked really closely. It was East of Eden. Maybe that's not a huge coincidence but I was REALLY excited about it.

That is an AWESOME coincidence. I am very impressed.

You have also reminded me that I have been meaning to write a blog post about coincidences in my life. I'll try to get to it before #600.

I have always wanted to read that book-I will add it to my list.
