a quote and a question

“Folks say I’ve never been quite right since – but they only say that because I’m a poet, and because nothing ever worries me.”

Cousin Jimmy in Emily of New Moon, by L. M. Montgomery

    That’s one of my very favorite books. 🙂 We’re reading The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis together right now, and I’m reading “The Middle Place” on my own.

    I read Eli the Good by Silas House (one of my favorite authors — this is his first book for a young adult audience). Not sure what I’ll read next — I am trying to read my way through all of the Newbery winners so maybe I’ll get back to that list and read one of those.

    I got really bogged down in Wolf Hall and have set it aside for now. I just finished Mr. Peanut by Adam Ross and found it very engaging. I’m now alternating between Maya Angelou’s Letter to my Daughter and Tobias Wolff’s, Our Story Begins. Both can be picked up and set aside as they are short essays and stories respectively.
    The best book I’ve read this year is The Help by Kathryn Stockett.

    Like Barbara, I loved The Help. I’m reading The Accidental by Ali Smith, what an engaging and unique writing style! Plus I’m reading a book on photography, Understanding Exposure.

    Jinx! I asked the very same question on my blog today!!! (Hi from The Lake! The nurse’s cabin has wireless internet this year! )

    Oh, you mean to my kids? 🙂 My daughter always has her nose in a Japanese Manga book — I believe Inuyasha is her latest find.

    And I’m reading The Wintersmith by Terry Prachett to my son. We love the Tiffany Aching books; the Nac Mac Feegles are so hilarious.
