1. Michigan, USA
2. Where the temps are between 65-75, low to no humidity in summer, no snow, mostly sunny but some rain. I don‘t think this place really exists. I wouldn‘t mind Spain 🇪🇸 for a while though.
3. Virginia, USA (Always and Forever, Lara Jean - Jenny Han)
4. Typical American food - 🥔🍞🍔🍕🍟🌮🌭- we are a solid Midwest town.
5. All the love to all the Littens! 💗💓

BookNAround Well, #2 fits the UP in the summer. 😉 9mo
OrangeMooseReads @BookNAround yeah but then there is that pesky snow issue lol 9mo
BookNAround @OrangeMooseReads Yeah, I definitely wouldn‘t say it fits in the winter. LOL! You just need to find somewhere else for the other 9 months of the year. 9mo
SailorMoon Thanks for playing!!! 💕🤟🏻🌙 9mo

"Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. They were the last people you‘d expect to be involved in anything #strange or mysterious, because they just didn‘t hold with such nonsense." #QuotsyJan19

Louise And so it begins. . . ! 10mo
julesG @Louise Exactly! A first line I can recite by heart. 10mo
Louise @julesG Yes! So brilliant! “...perfectly normal, thank you very much.” This tells us so much in so few words. 😂 10mo

julesG @Louise I always wonder how long she worked on this sentence, or whether it was perfect from the start. 10mo
Louise @julesG That is a really interesting question! I think it was Nathaniel West who said, “Easy reading is hard writing.” But then again, sometimes the right words just fall into place. Would love to know how JKR would answer re: this particular opening line! 10mo
Zelma I often read this sentence aloud to any waffling about reading Harry Potter. It sets the tone so perfectly. 10mo
TK-421 @Louise @julesG @zelma It's one of my all-time favourite opening lines! Truly brilliant 10mo

“What strange phenomena we find in a great city, all we need do is stroll about with our eyes open. Life swarms with innocent monsters.”

Attributed by the InterWebs to Charles Baudelaire. I was unable to find it in writing in any of his works.

C.Perone Those are some FREAKY cookies! 🤪 10mo
LiterRohde @C.Perone I know, right! It makes want to get the recipe - and I hate baking. Love cooking. Hate baking. It‘s too exact. (edited) 10mo
C.Perone @LiterRohde Easy and no exacting recipe - pillsbury sugar cookie squares, food coloring, and candy eyes...no fuss, no muss. HOWEVER, the oven temp and bake time of said ready to bake squares is so damn exact you need NASA grade oven thermometers and timers!! 🙇‍♀️ 10mo
wanderinglynn 😂 I feel the opposite! I hate cooking & love baking because it‘s exact! 10mo

“If you always do what you‘ve always done, you always get what you‘ve always gotten.”

It‘s strange to me that simple statements like this are so hard to grasp.

I heard this quote in a TV show today. Turns out the earliest known attribution of this quote was written in my city newspaper, The Milwaukee Sentinel, in 1981, said by Jessie Potter, a family relationship counselor.
