In the first place, I always find it hard to realign my stack to reality.
For instance, look at all the beautiful books which are NOT on my list!
I didn’t it find it hard to get a stack of books going.
There are some gaps for books to read with my son and my neice.
I have some borrowed books in the picture below
and one lender reads this blog. Uh-oh!
There are the good lenders, the friends who share your taste
and thrust a book into your hand with promises that you will like it.
I’m a book-thruster from way back. It’s one of my vices.
My husband keeps trying to curtail my book-thrusting tendencies.
Because….there are the books which are thrust upon you almost,
umm, against your will. You know what I mean?
“I really want you to read this book,” the well-meaner says.
One of these books fits that category, but I can’t say which one.
But I digress…
I’m reading My Antonia with my niece.
I’m trying to read Wives and Daughters before the Netflix envelope comes.
The Intellectual Life: I suppose I’m the last one on this bus.
The Lives of A Cell – Poiema wrote so compellingly about this title.
A Natural History of Latin delights me. I must finish it…and return it….yesterday.
If you are new to Magistra, you might not know that
my husband and I are taking a trip to Scotland and England next spring.
Almost every event in life requires a book to read first, agreed?
Come on! How many of us read
What to Expect when we were expecting?
I’ve never traveled over the ocean, so I’m delighted with these books.
At Home with Beatrix Potter
