Don't Judge a LOL by What She Wears

 It's easy to get caught up in the perfect Spandex look. Today was bliss: new Under Armour black jacket, Fila gray capris and Adidas yellow and moss green workout top that matched my gray and green sneaks -- my first truly put-together look for the gym. OK, I know I mixed labels. But still.
  But I digress. LsOL also like to read. Really. This morning a roomful met for our monthly book club. It would be hard to find a better-read group of women. I'm still playing catch-up. One gift of leisurehood is time to read and not just the kid's required books for English class, but for yourself.
  So what do LsOL read? This month was the Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley. It's a sweet mystery read, appealing to adults but a perfect recommendation for tweens who enjoy a strong female heroine, that being Flavia De Luce, 11 years old and Super Detective.
  This group  takes a hiatus over summer -- there is the Shore, after all, and for many of these LsOL, Shore houses. (Not yours truly, however.) But our summer stimulation will be The Millennium Series by
the late Stieg Larsson. I've already started The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and am riveted. Hope to finish it in time to catch the flick at the Bryn Mawr Theater. But that could be challenging. This isn't a beach read. It's more of a rainy day, stay in bed with the covers up kind of story. Perfect for a LOL.
