We are scrambling to finish a few chores before school starts. Been in to work on the library a bit but meetings and classroom set-up start tomorrow. Summer has been great, got to the coast, had great times with friends and did some serious basement and closet purging.
Still very sad over the loss of our beloved pup but have spent time sharing memories and stories with friends. I want to thank all those who left kind words here last week. We are lucky to have people around us who share a love of animals and who understand our grief.
As for books and reading I finished Galore, Monster of God and The Quantum Thief, but am having the worst time sitting down and writing about them. I loved all three but just can’t seem to put words together, some kind of writing slump..funk..block. The reason I started Page247 was to share my love of books and I feel kind of foolish being stuck like this. Has this happened to you?
On a cheerier note I read a great piece on Charles Dickens and Dickens Camp in The New Yorker. Here is a link to the abstract, I think it is worth getting your hands on a copy. I plan on starting The Book of Salt later on today, or maybe Animal’s People. What are your reading plans? Have a good Sunday and a great week!
