The book club is reading Wonder this month.  I forgot.  At knitting today Mitzi said that she had finished the book and had liked it....I looked it up....I don't think that I'll read this one.....hmmmmm....Mitzi said she liked it.  That is what book clubs are about:  reading books you might not read otherwise.


I am listening to it on audible and I think perhaps listening is the absolute best way to read this book!

The marriage of Mr. Tushman and Miss Butt.  Oh my gosh, how perfect is that!  Perhaps it is the sense of humor that both Augie and his dad have that saves all!

I asked a young girl on the plane last night if she had read it and she said yes....when she was in the 5th grade.  And she and I agreed that we liked the book a lot.  Her comment about it was that she liked the way much of the story was told from other character's perspective....just the comment that I made at book club!  Good read!

Books for Living

I did not like this book by Will Schwalbe as well as I did The End of Your Life Book Club.  Somehow I also did not get around to making a list of the books from his list that I might like to read.  I am not sure that I found the books he named as appealing as those in his first book.  But I did finish the book which I never do if I really don't like a book.

Mary's link to an article on reading

Mary sent me a link to an article about adding more reading in one's life that she said reminded her of me

hey mom, this article made me think of you


My comment back to Mary was:

No wonder it made you think of me!  It is ALL about me ……every part of it!  Well except perhaps the turning on the TV part…..I loved the article!  

I am putting it on my blog!  And interestingly enough, I don’t have a problem with trying to read too many books….but I just put into place the rule about not having more than three knitting projects going at any one time.
