I opened a book…

I remember I saw this on another blog and really liked it. Then, when I saw it again on Pinterest
I knew I just had to share it with my fellow book lovers.

It is brilliant!

On a personal note, we opened up our cottage for the season on the long weekend.  As my internet hasn’t been hooked up yet for the summer, I was four days offline.  This is what I came home to:

With 541 emails to attend to, it might take me a while to catch up.

Your patience is very much appreciated.

  3. It always amazes me how many examples you find for this meme! I love Tammy Cohen’s books and I’ve read The Broken but the one that has lingered longest is The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend which was unlike my usual types of read but so very appealing!

  4. What a great little poem! Thank you for sharing and it actually sounds like you are more behind in email reading than I–HA! So, Lynne, Grab a cup and the pup and set the puter churning, then lift the book, correct the specs, and start the pages turning!

    Hi Lynne, My husband and I just returned from Nova Scotia, our first visit, and I am officially in love with Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. We stayed at White Point for a week before traveling to PEI. Love Halifax, fun shopping and seeing the beautiful library (stacked books architecture). We plan to return sometime in the future.

    • Wonderful to hear! I’m so glad you liked our beautiful province. Come back again when the weather is warmer, or when the leaves turn beautiful in the autumn. I’m pleased you got a chance to visit the new Halifax library. I’m proud to say that I catalogued most of the fiction books on the fifth floor.

    I love this poem. It says so much. I am glad you will have the opportunity to enjoy your summer at your cottage. That was how I felt when I got home from Ireland/Scotland. I had to just delete some, I was gone for 18 days. Take you time, make sure you get some reading time in.
