Since it‘s getting into summer vacation season, it‘s been slow on the phones here in the call center, so I‘ve been reading books in “Libby” (shhh, don‘t tell my boss! 😉). Right now I‘m reading Howards End, and frankly, I‘m struggling. If I hadn‘t seen the adaption of it on “Starz,” I would have no idea what was going on! I‘ll try my best to trudge through the rest of this!
EM Forster is so good at what he does. This is the third of his books that I've read and now I want to read them all. He's so insightful and funny and unbelievably modern. Another great story about sisters, and also about home and class and rich dudes being total jackasses.

It may be followed by a civilization that won't be a movement, because it will rest on the earth. All the signs are against it now, but I can't help hoping, and very early in the morning in the garden I feel that our house is the future as well as the past.'
For #madeintoamovie, I'm giving all the love to Merchant Ivory and the beautiful adaptations of Ruth Prawer Jhabvala —if you watched the Oscars back in those days, you'll remember her name 😊 Clockwise from left: A Room With a View, The Remains of the Day, Howard's End. #somethingforsept #septphotochallenge @RealLifeReading
