IT’S THE WEEKEND!!! 🙂 Yes, consider this “capitals-and-exclamation-points” overkill. That just shows how truly ecstatic I am.
Nope, no big plans here. I just plan to stay up late watching TV, walk around lazily in my jammies, play lego with the little one, take the bike for a cruise and hopefully have time to curl up in a comfy chair with a box of Kleenex, while I get lost in these crisp dreamy pages….
The moment I got the book, I already flipped through some pages to get a preview of the journey ahead of me. And before I knew it, I was already in chapter 5 and seemed to have gotten lost in eras, characters, and vividly-described scenarios. I sure have a long way to go and I’m glad I have the whole weekend to embrace this beautifully-written book from start to finish, hopefully with a cup of tea and a plateful of baked eggs 🙂
Truth is, I also needed a refreshing change from that dangerously addictive trilogy. Oh yeah, don’t act coy on me like that…you know exactly what I’m talking about! LOL. I am still at a loss as to how those oddly-written (“oddly” may be an understatement) books have managed to creep into my consciousness and have set camp there. Seriously! I guess you don’t need to be a Pulitzer Prize winner to be an engaging storyteller (or a best-selling author at that!). Clearly, writing and storytelling are two very different things.
Oh well, food for thought! 🙂
