After waiting for weeks, my name finally came up on the library reserve list for this book:
Digital SLR Cameras & Photography for Dummies by David D. Busch.
(I'm reading the 2nd edition, but link to the most recent version). It has been worth the wait, and I'm only through the first chapter! I know this book is going to answer MANY questions I have. Don't be turned off by the "Dummies" part of the title (Eden was--she said, "Mom, you're not a dummy!"--hehe, thanks girl), the author does assume that you know a few things about cameras and taking pictures. It is easy to read and follow. I'm loving it.
In other news, here is our little Snow White:
She won this apple from her brother Zeke and is loving being able to sink her teeth into it. I'm ok with that--as long as she doesn't get confused later! :)
