Picked up this book for a GoodReads Genreland prompt (Monkeys). Was registering a bunch of books and decided to add this into the stack although I am still reading it.

GenreLand's prompt for May is Monkeys. The last time I was shopping on Better World Books I plugged in "monkeys" as the search term. It brought up lots of kids' books and this title. I figured, "why not?"

Hardware stores remind me of my father and Saturday mornings spent watching This Old House. I like Mom and Pop ones best, like Winfield Hardware in this book. I also like Tru Valu and Ace locations because there's always something quirky about each one. I really hate going to the big name home improvement stores because you can't get decent service. So this was a good choice for me.

I enjoyed the book and the tongue-in-cheek presentation of the subject matter. And I learned a few things. Very few people had lawns until after the first lawnmowers were sold to the general public. I also finally understand the fundamentals of how batteries work.

Thank U "6"for dropping this book off at my house and for joining me in an outdoor socially distanced lunch, social time, on a lovely spring day. Hopefully this pandemic, CV19 virus, will wear itself out sooner than later... and then we can have in person BC meet-ups, book festivals and just jolly good get togethers with all of our friends. ūüė∑
