Kicking off the decade with The Dutch House.
Excellent in-flight entertainment.
"I thought I knew a thing about people. Even had my list of universals. But I wondered. Maybe the world wasn't made up of universals that could be summed up in neat little packages. Maybe there were just people. People who were tired and hurt and lonely and kind in their own way and in their own time." - Abilene
"All seven-year-olds deserve superheroes. And anyone who doesn't agree needs their head examined." Like Elsa, my granny was my superhero, and she still is. I miss her so much.
Current obsessions: crocheting, and reading Harry Potter with my kiddo. #ravenclaw
Ah, a lazy Saturday. Plenty of time for a leisurely lunch and a spooky book. A happy couple moves into a flat, excited to begin their lives together. But the neighbors.... So far it vaguely reminds me of Rosemary's Baby.
Book of the week, with old plane ticket and Cracker Jack prize.
I use at least two bookmarks in every book (to track my daily pages), then leave them in the book to give extra life to my library. I also sign and date the last page when I finish a book. What are your book rituals?
Happiness is...helping out at the book fair. 😀😁😍
In other news, I just learned that Hello Universe is this year's Newbery Medal winner. I highly recommend this lovely book about friendship and courage. The characters are well developed and memorable.
My date for the morning, in preparation for my first ever live, in person, book club meeting tonight. Excited to discuss a terrific book with new friends.
Hi Litsy! Thought my first ever post should be about my favorite book of all time, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, by Betty Smith (even though I didn't read it until this year!). It was one of those books that I had to read more slowly as I got close to finishing it - I didn't want to say goodbye to Francie. So, so good.
