The "is-it-fiction-or-is-it-nonfiction" question was an easy one on the night we read this absolutely delightful, and enjoyable book, The House Takes a Vacation by Jacqueline Davies.
So, fiction or nonfiction? This one is fiction, you tell Boo. Absolutely.
You sure about that? Because that's what I thought, too ... until I read this article from the New York Times and saw this AP picture from Newsday.
The house was recently sold (for $1.00!) to a couple who is paying at least $100,000 to move the Robert Venturi-designed 1,500 house by barge from Barnagat Light, NJ to Glen Cove, NY, where they will use it as a guest house on their existing property. (Not too shabby for a guest house, hmm?) It's en route as I type and is expected to arrive in New York sometime tomorrow morning.
So, back to The House Takes a Vacation, which is a very fun book and a new favorite of Betty and Boo's. Fiction or nonfiction?
Kind of a stumper, isn't it?
