Breakfast at Tiffany's | Truman Capote
post image

I just finished the adorable Capote short story, A Christmas Memory.
I had NO IDEA he wrote Breakfast at Tiffany‘s- so I started this book & movie.I have to say, I had no idea what they were about, just that the movie is a classic.I am so off the mark about what the movie is about!! I thought she was a classy lady, not a flitsy, kept lady! I‘m curious to see how the story unfolds, So far the movie is keeping very close to the book-even dialogue!

dabbe I always read “A Christmas Memory“ with my students. Such a heartfelt story and nothing like BatT! 1mo
tpixie @dabbe yes Memory was so sweet. Loved the illustrations also. BaT is much more crass! Lol I never knew! 1mo
BkClubCare Aw!! Love a new audience for this complex tale. I was blown away, too!! (Wayyy back 30 yrs ago!) 1mo

tpixie @BkClubCare I‘m late to the party! But I also have put off In Cold Blood. That may be next! (edited) 1mo
BkClubCare @tpixie - I‘m from Kansas. I tackled ICB way back; very soon after finding out how awesome narrative nonfiction can be. 1mo
BkClubCare @tpixie + to me, it is fascinating about Capote because people have opinions but do they really know what he is about? He is a terrific example of someone who contains multitudes. (Don‘t we all?) 1mo
tpixie @BkClubCare lol I‘m from Kansas too! THATS why I‘ve delayed it! Now in Hutchinson 🌻 1mo
tpixie @BkClubCare yes! Great description! I‘m also curious about his Harper Lee connection. I think I‘m also going to move up - not certain if he is in it, but Harper is a ( minor) character (edited) 1mo
BkClubCare @tpixie - #KSLittens! 💖🌻 (I‘m in ICT) 1mo
tpixie @BkClubCare how fun! We‘re so close! I used to live in NE ICT- for most of my adult life. I miss B&N, Watermark Books, Target, & Oh Yeah! China Bistro Chinese restaurant! Of course, they aren‘t THAT far away, but still takes extra driving time. This Spring, we should have a #LitsyMeetUp! (edited) 1mo

This Kansas 🌻 girl is going to go on a road trip looking for the time travel portal off of I-70!

Chrissyreadit I need a time travel portal too 😆😘 4mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit it‘s been weird - all my books have been overlapping. I was reading two books at the same time in which the main character was named Alice. Two books, one right after another, that the father was dying and the daughter was the caregiver. And now two time travel books in a row. Too bad I don‘t journal, or I would be able to keep all those books a little more straight in my head! 4mo

Chrissyreadit Those are crazy coincidences 4mo
tpixie @Chrissyreadit yes! So weird! 4mo
EvieBee I live off I-70 🤣😂 Tell me when you find it. 4mo
tpixie @EvieBee ok! 😀 which state?! 4mo
EvieBee @tpixie Missouri; we‘re neighbors! (edited) 4mo
tpixie Yes!!! Hi neighbor!!! I was born in Carthage, and lived in Springfield and Jefferson City, before moving to Overland Park Ks as a child. So close! As an adult, I‘ve lived in Wichita & Hutchinson. Several years ago, we had a #LitsyMeetUp at a KC library with KS & MO Littens. 🌺 4mo

Graciouswarriorprincess I was planning on attending but with all the Covid outbreaks, I decided not to attend. Stay safe!! 6mo
Susanita I signed up to volunteer. When I know my assignment, I‘ll have a better idea of my availability. 6mo

wanderinglynn @Susanita how fun! I hope you get to meet some cool authors. 6mo
tpixie @wanderinglynn @Susanita have fun!!! I‘ll be living vicariously through you! #NatBookFest #NatBookFest2022 6mo
PageShifter This is so awesome idea. I wish you all have fun 🥳 6mo
wanderinglynn @PageShifter 😀 thanks! 6mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @wanderinglynn I am so sad though. Being triple vaccinated but with a son the same but with a compromised immune system, I just am afraid of bringing something home to him. 😭😭😭 6mo
wanderinglynn @Graciouswarriorprincess I understand. I still wear a mask and I see other people wearing masks, but the majority of people in DC aren‘t. Better to stay safe. 💚 6mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @wanderinglynn That‘s what I thought as I had several friends go to conventions there recently and get sick. I am still coming home though to visit friends. Have fun! 6mo

Who wants to come over and pack ALL of these for me? Anyone? ANYONE? The movers are going to curse me.

PurpleyPumpkin ? Thé last time we moved, I had so many boxes of books that one of the movers asked my hubby if I was in publishing. I don‘t think he understood the concept of tsundoku. If we ever move again, I think we‘ll need one truck just for books. Good luck with your move!? 11mo
MicheleinPhilly @PurpleyPumpkin HA! They‘re definitely going to hate me. Thank you! 11mo
squirrelbrain 🙋🏻‍♀️I will, if you let me unpack them all too in your new place. Then I can sort them all alphabetically…my idea of bliss! 11mo

MicheleinPhilly @squirrelbrain I‘ll book you a plane ticket! 11mo
Cathythoughts Good luck with it all 👍🏻❤️ 11mo
Soubhiville I would if I were close and I could also snuggle Pickles! I actually find books to be the easiest to pack and love the unpacking and reorganizing process like @squirrelbrain . 11mo
Simona Good luck with packing and moving🤞 I hate both … 11mo
MicheleinPhilly @Soubhiville The bookshop owner said she would come over and help if she could snuggle with Pickles too. 😂 11mo
MicheleinPhilly @Cathythoughts @Simona Thank you! It‘s all so stressful. 11mo
Sarahreadstoomuch Good luck!! 11mo
Tamra If you are like me, it takes forever because I have to stop & ponder titles. 😂 Wishing you a speedy and smooth move! 11mo
Liz_M I agree, book packing is the easiest part! My first move for which I hired movers, they came and looked at my stack of stuff that could fit in a 5x5 storage room and were like "that's it?" Then they discovered that over half of the boxes contained books.... 11mo
Jas16 If I didn‘t live on the other side of the country I would just for the fun of going through someone else‘s bookshelves. But I understand- that is why I will likely never move. 11mo
KristiAhlers All the books! ❤️ I hate moving. Former military wife and when he retired I started keeping my books! But I don‘t have near as much happiness as you do! Hope your move goes smoothly. I must say I have the moving and unpacking thing down to a fine science I guess I should after 15. Gah that‘s a stupid number. 11mo
MicheleinPhilly @KristiAhlers 15???? Oh my gosh, I would spontaneously combust from the anxiety. I mean, I moved a bunch in my 20s but was always renting so the accumulation of “stuff” was somewhat under control. 11mo
KristiAhlers @MicheleinPhilly yeah I‘ve lived all over the place to include England and Belgium! Have military will travel. I mean it‘s been great. I‘ve had a bunch of amazing experiences and seen so much of the world. I have been in all of the lower 48 and Hawaii just need Alaska and I‘ll have been in all the states! 11mo
TrishB I‘ll make the tea whilst Helen @squirrelbrain does the cataloging! 11mo
MicheleinPhilly @KristiAhlers That‘s amazing! I‘ve done 2 “big” moves - Philly to Los Angeles and the reverse but I was younger and much more resilient. 😂 11mo
MicheleinPhilly @TrishB That is an EXCELLENT plan. 11mo
squirrelbrain #litsymeetup at Michele‘s new house?! @TrishB @Soubhiville 🫖 📚 🍸 🍷 11mo
LeahBergen I prefer the unpacking and organizing of books. 😆 Good luck, my friend! 😘 11mo
MicheleinPhilly @LeahBergen Well you can come and handle that part with Helen. 😘 11mo
TrishB It‘s a plan ♥️ 11mo
Ruthiella That‘s a lot of books! Good luck! 11mo
marleed Beautiful display of gorgeousness - congrats on your collection! 11mo
CarolynM The last time we moved the removalists were horrified by the number of boxes of books. I reckon we've got twice as many now! Good luck with the packing and the move. 11mo
MicheleinPhilly @CarolynM I‘m afraid to call them for a quote. In addition to the sheer number, they‘ll have to carry them up an extra flight of stairs in the new house. 😬 11mo
DivineDiana Your collection is a thing of beauty, but you‘re right, the movers will think differently. 🤞🏻Best wishes! ❤️ (edited) 11mo
Amiable My husband still mutters under his breath about the 27 boxes of books I packed up for our move a few years ago. And that was after I culled the shelves because we were supposedly downsizing. 😬 Hope your move goes (went?) well! 10mo
Nute What a vision of loveliness!🤩 I would have helped, but we never would have gotten through it due to stopping to read instead.😆 Hope that things went well. Now it is a relocating-survivor‘s story!😁 10mo

Got together with my #Nashvillelittens in person last night for the first time in 2 years! Thank God and Dolly Parton for vaccines 🙌🏼 Thanks to @ferskner for hosting us and being the best secret Santa! It was a joy to hang out with all these amazing women. I came home with a perfect pile to read over the holidays. Merry Christmas to me 🎄📚
