We're heading to the cool mountains. I'm taking books, both real books and ebooks.
A pile of fabric too, I hope to come up with something to show you.
I love to read. I love good writing. I just finished a book about Gertrude Stein and Alice Toklas, Gertrude & Alice by Diane Souhami. She did a lovely job of bringing them to life. What characters they were!
I'm currently reading Heartburn by Nora Ephron. I read it when it came out in the 80s and after reading so much about her life when she died recently, i thought I should revisit it. It's always interesting to read a book again, years after that first read. Boy is she funny. She was and always shall be.
Ebooks! I'm loving quilt ebooks. I am finding them fun to look at on my reader. I recently got Sunday Morning Quilts by Amanda Nyberg & Cheryl Arkison. It has great quilts and a great chapter about organizing scraps. I dream of the day when my scraps are organized, I think this could help.
Last but not least, I'm taking John Irving's new book, In One Person. I hear it is more like Garp than his recent work. Fingers crossed!
Your Grandmother is beautiful! Have fun on your trip. I noted down the tittles of the books to add to my list. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the reading suggestions. My book club is on a Hemingway kick and I'm bored stiff reading The Sun Also Rises. That flapper one sounds intriguing.ReplyDelete
Add me to the Flapper list as well, sounds intriguing. I am just finishing up Beastly Things by Donna Leon. Enjoy the mountains and the coolness there. I am spending the day sewing....yea!ReplyDelete
I reread Heartburn every 2 years. It is touching and hilarious. As well the recipes are fantastic!ReplyDelete
Those books sound fascinating (I clicked over to Amazon to see more). KarmenReplyDelete
Thanks! I love good book recommendations. Have fun in the mountains!ReplyDelete
I enjoyed The Chaperone. Another really good book I read recently is Leonard Pitts' new novel, "Freeman."ReplyDelete
