Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Looking for Alaska

I liked this young adult book a lot so appreciated the reminder of this quote. Kind of like my life and my bookshelves:

"Have you really read all those books in your room?" She laughed. "Oh God no. I've maybe read a third of 'em. But I'm going to read all of them. I call it my Life's Library. Every summer since I was little, I've gone to garage sales and bought all the books that looked interesting. So I always have something to read." --Looking for Alaska by John Green

Thanks to teen blogger Lexi for this. Also fun to see what books actual real-live avid readers, of the book's intended age group, are reading.

I bought this book for my nephew, then read it myself before I sent it off. Captivating, and deeply touching. I worried a bit about the racy part, but realized teens these days are a bit more sophisticated in that realm than I was. A great story.
