Lastly, she pictured to herself how this same little sister of hers would, in the after-time, be herself a grown woman; and how she would keep, through all her riper years, the simple and loving heart of her childhood: and how she would gather about her other little children, and make their eyes bright and eager with many a strange tale, perhaps even with the dream of Wonderland of long ago: and how she would feel with all their simple sorrows,π
Book #94: In one word, this book was "bizarre". This is the first time I have read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but I have seen both the Disney and Tim Burton versions, and both of them made more sense than this book. As my friend put it, that must have been some good opium he was on when he wrote this. The story jumps around randomly and it goes...

Finally visited this beautiful 11 feet tall Alice in Wonderland sculpture in Central Park NYC! It‘s a beautiful day, and it was tough to get a shot without people posing on it!
Stayed in the coolest #hotel where everything was oversized to make you feel like you were in Wonderland, Trinity Church Hotel Dublin. I know it‘s under new ownership now and I‘m not sure they kept the theme.
Donβt fall into the trap of thinking you won't bother reading Aliceβs Adventures in Wonderland because you saw the film a million times. Reading the book is a completely different experience. The cleverness of the wordplay is a lot more noticeable. The best way to experience this book is to read it aloud, to get the full impact of its genius.

A bit on the nose, I know. Though it's described as just a pool- maybe she would have had to shed a few more, or have grown even larger to deliver a river? π§π
It‘s the last week of the excavation and that means we‘ve gone to a six day work week. What that really means is that I have one more week of not reading a lot and then I can get back to ALL the reading. Can‘t wait. I definitely miss escaping into a good book while excavating. So, this week‘s book covers are both great. Do you have a favorite? (And then the two for next week are my favorite of them all I think.)
π§ Taking a break from listening to βTom Jones‘ with this short (less than 3 hrs) Audible offering.
I‘m a big AIW fan, and I like Scarlet Johansson as the Black Widow in MCU, but I‘m not really grooving on her flat American voice stripping out all the Britishness of this Classic 19th c. tale.
I‘ll finish though while I‘m waiting for another credit to roll in.
With so much heaviness in this world, I remain grateful for visits to Wonderland.

Friendship is such a special gift. I am so fortunate to have some genuinely kind, compassionate, and thoughtful friends, like the one who sent me this extraordinary Alice in Wonderland belt. This was such a wonderful surprise to find waiting outside my front door this morning. β€οΈ

The ONLY reason I am enjoying this book is due to the amazing job Scarlett Johansson is doing narrating it, she does voices and all. I've tried reading the book, and could not get into the writting style. It's similar with the audio but ScarJo keeps it from being a total bore. I love the general premise of the story & the characters, so I guess I'll just have to stick to the Disney version. π€·ββοΈ

I did not have $55 to spend on this magnificent pop up version of Alice‘s Adventures in Wonderland. We have rent and bills that take priority but I did briefly consider how bad life lived in a cardboard box with a fun book to look at would be. I took it upon myself to grab a tote that was for sale at the bookstore we went to today and I used it as a background for the photo. π
Ever since I first saw the Mina Lima editions I was hoping for them to publish Alice in Wonderland - and guess what - they willππ»π€©
Out in October in English and in January or February in German - Iβm so excited and happy for thisπ Iβm sure it will be another marvellous edition!
This book is a fantasy. I would use this as a literature circle. A young girl named Alice falls into a rabbit hole. She then proceeds to a door which leads her to a magical place where she will meet bizarre people and animals.
