Today‘s prompt was Daughter/Son but since I found 16 #Daughter titles in my GoodReads #read shelf, I thought I would just feature them!

Clwojick Great choices! 1mo

I am with Anna's mom on this one. It's time for these two to jump in the shower! Sensibilities may be more European than North American. #PictureBooks

Nute
Blue Nights | Joan Didion

#MayMoms - Writer: She was the first thought to come to mind after I read the prompt for today. Perhaps because she is one of my favorite writers. Perhaps because her writing abilities can be described as quite brilliant. She demanded an examination of cultural, political and social rhetoric. Perhaps because she was bold and frank in her writings of the 60s and 70s.👇🏽

Nute A daring female writer not afraid to be vulnerable in the assessment of the ordeal and brutally honest in the exposure of the chaos of the counterculture of those eras.
Perhaps though the greatest inclination to first thought is because of the strength that it must take to write about the death of one‘s own child (tagged book).
This is Joan Didion, an American writer, a mom.

I wanted more of Joan Didion‘s writing about her husband and daughter so I borrowed this one from the library. It was quite good. I enjoy Didion‘s writing. 4⭐️

#coffeeandbooks #mugtour #nationalhistoricsites #nationalparkservice

This mug is from FDR‘s Library and Museum in Hyde Park NY. During a visit of several days, we toured the Library, his home,Springwood, Eleanor Roosevelt‘s retreat,Val-Kill, & the Vanderbilt Mansion. We also ate a few fabulous meals at the nearby Culinary Institute.
I am so enjoying this #mugtour because it is evoking such wonderful, warm memories.

Amiable My husband and I visited Hyde Park and Val-Kill a few summers ago —it is such a lovely place! (edited) 7mo
Cpg If you get “down south” visit the Little Whitehouse in Warm Springs, GA (or Ala I think GA) for more FDR history. It‘s by Calloway Gardens- Pine Mountain, GA. 7mo
Cpg Sounds like a fabulous tour you were on- I‘ve always wanted to visit the Biltmore! 7mo
