Quick story: my godmother died in March, almost three months to the day after we found out she had pancreatic cancer. It was fast, and it was awful, and it still doesn‘t seem real. Yesterday at work, I opened our lost-and-found drawer when a patron called to ask if we‘d found any pictures in books she‘d returned. I moved a notepad, and this bookmark fell out. My godmother‘s name? Christine. (Aunt Tine, to me and my cousins. 💖) #annelamott #signs

2022 has kind of been a bitch of a year, and a friend who‘s going through some rough stuff just returned this with glowing reviews. So, spending some time with it myself. 💖 #stitches #annelamott #solace #comfort

This makes me think of the churches that have proclaimed that Donald Trump is “God‘s President” and (even more so) Westboro Baptist Church.

goodbyefrancie I ❤ Anne Lamott. 4y
GingerAntics @goodbyefrancie I don‘t know anything about her. I just saw this quote in the tagged book. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Who is she? She sounds like a person worth learning from. (edited) 4y

I spent the entirety of my 20-year education in Catholic institutions, and I‘m still active in my home parish. But I genuinely love to learn about other faiths, because at its heart, they all focus on the same thing: Love, and Goodness, and Truth - we just have different names for It. (I also love when there‘s humor involved.) #helpthankswow #annelamott #prayer #faith

“So God made some of us fast in this area of working with words, and he gave us the gift of loving to read with the same kind of passion with which we love nature.” Finding myself in the pages of #books as always. Seeing reasons why I write=priceless #birdbybird #annelamott

Any suggestions for a next read? I just have a couple chapters left in The Minotaur. My piles are out of control. I like to keep it light-ish during the school term so it‘s probably not the time for Hard Laughter!🤔

mcipher I‘ve heard The Magpie Murders is good! I love Anne Lamott, too. ☺️ 5y
Autumnlong @mcipher I‘ve only read (well, most of!) Bird by Bird. Do you have a favorite of her novels? 5y
mcipher I‘ve read more of her non-fiction but I remember really liking 5y

Autumnlong @mcipher thanks! I‘ll keep an eye out for it 👀💕 5y
mcipher 👍 Which did you end up picking to read next? 5y
Autumnlong @mcipher I‘m going with Magpie Murders. Such an appealing cover. Unfortunately too big for my backpack though, so a slow start! 5y
mcipher Let me know how it is! It‘s on my list. 5y
jdenslow I chose Hard Laughter as my very first pick for our book club and 10 years later they won't let me forget how much everyone hated it. Except me. I liked it, but admittedly, there is a lot of Anee Lamott in the main character, so if you've read her nonfiction you have an idea of where this is going. 5y
