It's 2:15 on Sunday morning. I woke up an hour ago and couldn't get back to sleep so got up to read for a bit. It's stormy out and I can hear the rain hitting the windows.
This was a quick read but diffferent and enjoyable. Anna is the middle child of three girls. She's shy and practically invisible. How she deals with this invisibility and overcomes it makes for an interesting young-adult story.
I'm glad my former student lent it to me. Thanks, Elise!
I'm slogging through Last Breath and am almost ready to abandon it. For some reason, I just can't get into it.
With retirement looming and a home in Florida to pay for, I've decided not to buy any more books (except when I get gift cards!) but to make use of the library instead. So, one afternoon this week I visited the library in town for the first time in about 30 years. Unbelievably, they still had my old registration card from when I was about 6 years old. It was a mess with several addresses so the librarian decided to make a new one for me and I asked her for the old one to use in my visual journal. I got a kick out of my signature and business address! St. Patrick's is the elementary school I attended. Here's a picture of the page:
These are the three books I picked up at the library this week.
