Jo and Amy. I‘m totally fine with this. In addition to Jo‘s spirit of adventure and independence, I also share her temper. And I can definitely be a bit selfish but caring like Amy. https://www.buzzfeed.com/farrahpenn/which-little-women-march-sisters-combination...

Time for my annual reread. Francie is a kindred spirit. I‘ve felt connected to her since I first read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn over 20 years ago when I was 12. I try to reread it every December. #favoritebook

Late night reading and whiskey. I‘ve been working too many night shifts in a row and even though I‘m tired I can‘t fall asleep. Hoping the whiskey will help.

When the birds outside at 1:30 am are keeping you awake, might as well keep reading. But also what are these birds doing up it‘s like at least 3 hrs too early. I can fall asleep to sirens and street noise but these birds are out of control. #citybirds #latenightreading

My six days off went by way too fast 😫 Spending this last precious day lazily. Took a nice long walk as the sun is finally out after days of snow and hiding behind clouds. Now snuggled up with a blanket, tea and book. Should do some cleaning but 🤷🏻‍♀️ this is much better.

A Tale of Two Cities | Charles Dickens
post image

Happy Birthday, Charles Dickens! A Tale of Two Cities is my favorite Dickens, excluding A Christmas Carol which I put in a different category it being a short story. As a Freshman in HS, it was my first exposure to, other than a Christmas Carol, Dickens and while skeptical at first I could not put the book down by the end and it has remained a favorite since.

My mother had this book on tape playing in the car all the time when I was 11/12. I figured 20 years later it was probably time I read it for myself.

Whenever this song comes on I think of my grandma. It was playing in the common room of her nursing home the afternoon she was dying. She was surrounded by family, it was as lovely as dying can get. She took her last breath as The Lonely Goatherd was playing. She enjoyed musicals and I think this would have made her smile and now I smile everytime I hear it. I was lucky enough to have her be with me for 23 yrs. ❤️

LiteraryinLawrence Wow, what a lovely memory. ❤️❤️ 4y

“This is why I don‘t like talking to people. I never think of anything interesting to say. I need time to find words, and that‘s hard when people are looking at me. Also, I don‘t like people much. Well, some are okay. But not enough to make it a given.” Only 15 pages in, but odds are strong that I am going to like this character.
