Medley, a musical word for a potpourri of songs strung together…so I offer the following selections in no particular order…
~Iliana gifted me with a lovely award some time ago, and I feel quite remiss in not acknowledging it sooner. The You Make My Day award is such a nice recognition, and I was touched to receive it. And imagine my surprise and delight to receive the same award from Gautami today! The ravenous reader is exremely flattered (blushes).
~Reading was curtailed this weekend by an afternoon at the theater, a local production of Almost, Maine, an absolutely delightful romantic comedy, with performances of exceptional quality. The play is a series of short vignettes, during which we meet eight couples (played by a cast of four), residents of the small town of Almost, Maine, and all in varying stages of their relationships. It was humorous, poignant, and heart-warming, particularly as performed in this very intimate theater setting. So, not a bookish day, but at least a little bit literary (smiles).
~After all the effort to finish my biography of Jane Austen before last night’s version on television, I didn’t end up watching it! Oh well, it’s waiting for me on the recorder. For those who watched – what did you think?
~Later today, this ravenous reader boards a plane (again!) books clutched tightly in hand, this time with a pair of (ravenous reading) girlfriends. We’re heading south for an annual girls week of rest and relaxation, which invariably includes time spent reading – as well as eating, talking, drinking…well, you get the idea.
Now, on with your reading.
