Tonight's read with my son. Such an adorable little book. he loves watching what happens to everybody when they try to hurt little Patrick. Perfect read for a mommy and her little one 💕❤️💕
So I‘ve had this bookmark for years, since my youngest was little and I wrote this on his bookmark. I must have returned a book to the library with it inside last week (because I remember using it last week), and my friend on vacation just sent me this picture when she found it inside her book! So funny. #coincidence
#thunderstruck #getmovin The true stories in this collection have the common thread of coincidence- the kind of events where the universe suddenly seems to be looking directly at you. None are longer than a couple of pages, but all have a certain weight to them. In this one, he recounts a disastrous hiking trip at 14, when a thunderstorm strikes. A boy crawling under a metal fence in front of Auster is electrocuted and killed before his eyes.
I may have found my favorite of 2018 this early in the year. The author bought antique letters written in French with the idea of turning the beautiful writing into a font. After having the letters translated, she became wrapped up in the story of Marcel and his fate. This should be a movie! Also, I received a lovely letter (with French writing on the stationery! 🇫🇷 #coincidence) from @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks #LitsyPenPals
