Melissa was on her way to Sisters of the Road to grab lunch with a friend. She was pedaling past as I was talking to "Pinky".
"Hey, I heard about you... you're that book lady, right?" she asked me. "I'm one of them," I replied. Melissa found two books she was excited about. She told me she liked to read at night when thoughts of her children creep into her mind. She also asked me if we barter. She said she would bring a stack of books that she has already read when she returns the books we loaned her today.
