Wednesday

"Things happen. Things collide". (p.133) - Let the Great World Spin.

There is a theme of the connectedness of people and events in this book (my July book club selection) that can be interpreted as either eerie, spiritual, or just plain chance. Something to think about.

The book really blew me away; I've been telling everyone I know to read it so now I'm telling you.

Happy Wednesday!

I would really like to go to the beach. It would be awesome to find a cool crab like that. I haven't been to the beach for ages.

You're not the first person to recommend me this book and now I have to get myself a copy at last. Oh how I'd love to be there at the beach with you guys. Have fun!

Love the things the boys discover on the shore...
NPR just came out with their summer reading list which I have been perusing. (which is where I found Walking the Wrack Line...one of the lovliest books I've ever read. Think I have told you about it before.) I'll definitely order the book you've suggested.

I have been thinking about reading that book for a long time now - your recommendation sealed it for me. It's now on my Target shopping list. :)
