I caught Al's Book Club on the Today Show this morning. The book selection was Brian Selzniak's new novel, Wonderstruck, which I am dying to read. I keep hearing good things about it, and the kids on the Today Show seemed to enjoy it, too. I still haven't gotten around to reading Hugo Cabret, so I don't want to miss this one. Its size is a bit intimidating since I've been so busy, but half of it is pictures, so I think I can handle it.
