Have been feeling the need to create lately. This book is fun, as you can spend as much or little time as you want and still create.

Fifteen pages in and I‘m in love. More than a story about the Los Angeles Central Library fire of 1986, this is a love letter to Libraries, books, and librarians.

Sitting in the doctors office and I just finished this book, which was entertaining btw. But, of course I didn‘t bring another book...I should know better 😆

Kaye Hope your appt goes well. I always stick my kindle in my purse. Stupid thing is, I‘m always too nervous to read, so it‘s sorta pointless for me. I like having it there for a backup I guess. 8mo
rustoryhuf I almost picked up a spare book, but left it on the pile. Next time I‘ll know better. @Kaye 8mo
Avanders @rustoryhuf hi! Just checking in re #stuffedstockingswap #sss -- have you received your package? Your sender says that tracking indicates it should have arrived! Let me know ☺️🎄♥️ (edited) 7mo

I live 200 miles north of Panama City Beach. The eye of Hurricane Michael passed just east of us and was still a category 2 hurricane when it came through. We are safe, with no major damage and I am amazed at the photos I‘m seeing of the destruction. Cute granddaughter photo for perspective on how valuable life truly is.

DGRachel So glad you made it through okay! 9mo

This is the 2nd book I‘ve read about Ernest Hemingway and Martha Gellhorn, an author that he met in Key West. It‘s interesting to see how two different authors have written a historical novel about a real life couple.

Booksnchill I read Paula McClain‘s as well- thought about reading this so will await what you have to say! 11mo
rustoryhuf @Booksnchill so far I‘m liking this one better, as I find myself more involved with the story. The characters seem more evolved. 11mo

Theshadedbuffalo @rustoryhuf 😆 it was a Mother‘s Day gift for me too! About 5 years ago. It was a joke, because at that point I never did anything for myself, and my husband would jokingly call me a diva. 11mo
