Tuck Everlasting

Monday, March 31st, 2008

(Originally published by Nattie on November 10, 2003)
I’m rereading this book for the first time as an adult. The story still enchants me. It still haunts me. The hopeless romantic in me doesn’t like the ending, but the author helps you understand why it has to end the way it does.
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt is a classic and is not easily forgotten.

Women Who Love Books Too Much
Women Who Love Books Too Much: Bibliophiles, Bluestockings & Prolific Pens from the Algonquin Hotel to the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Brenda Knight
Move over wild women and women who do too much: With this irreverent tribute, author Brenda Knight casts a lovingly arch eye at the women who have devoted their lives to books. From Sylvia Beach and other booksellers to librarians, editors, writers, bibliophiles, and celebrated book clubs, Knight takes readers on a ribald ride through the pages of history. Chapter titles include “Prolific Pens” (such as Joyce Carol Oates, author of more than 100 books); “Mystics, Memoirists and Madwomen”; “Salons and Neosalons”; “Ink in Their Veins” (literary dynasties); and the titillating “Banned, Blacklisted, and Arrested.”


The Reptile Room

(Originally published by Nattie on November 9, 2003)
I wasn’t impressed with The Reptile Room by Lemony Snicket–Book Two in “A Series of Unfortunate Events.” In fact I found it kind of depressing. One book about all the bad things that happen to the Baudelaire children seems to be enough.
This book begins with Violet, Klaus and Sunny being taken to their newest guardian Uncle Monty–their late father’s cousin’s wife’s brother. Uncle Monty is a herpetologist and turns out to be much nicer than Cousin Olaf. The kids enjoy their stay with Uncle Monty. Then Count Olaf returns to steal their inheritance.

Take my love; my Lord I pour
at thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for thee.

The Moment I Saw You

I finished The moment I Saw You by Lisa Samson last night. I give it four M&M’s.
I wouldn’t say it is the best book of all time, but it is an endearing story and well written. It is a story of old fashioned romance, change and forgiveness. I also like the book because the main character’s name was Natalie.

May I panic yet?

Not only am I trying to get my son ready for kindergarten *sob* which starts in three weeks, I’m also trying to get ready for our vacation. I’m leaving hubby at home alone so I’m trying to make things as easy as possible for him.
Today I am decluttering my computer desk…a task that I’ve been putting off for ages. Then there is the prerequisite laundry and dishes. I had a dream my husband mopped my kitchen floor. Harsh reality is that it was just a dream.
I wonder why I’m worrying about the cleanliness of the house when I know he won’t. Hmmm. Maybe I need to rethink this to-do list.

~ Yesterday we were bit by the cleaning bug. Hubby and I team cleaned. I got to do most of the decluttering while he used his elbow grease to tackle tough stains (sounds like a commercial, doesn’t it?).
~ Today we had the last story time of the year. Boo Hoo!
~ Played at the park. I had fun teaching the kids how to pump their legs to go higher on the swings.
~ Did I mention it is in the 70’s? and it is November?! That is virtually unheard of in Indiana.
~ Working on more books for my list.
~ Have I said this before? So many books, so little time?!!! I swear I imbibe in books the way some do in alcohol or drugs. I devour them voraciously.
~ My children are always into mischief. It has been warm so we have the windows open. I know not to open the windows in the kids room because they will lift the screen and throw toys out. Hubby didn’t know that. So we had a back porch filled with toys and a stuffed bunny hanging in the gutter. They are silly.
