#inmemorium
My mother adored Barbara Pym.Decided to see the allure. Did not expect a comedy, with well drawn, contrasting, characters: Jane,41,the scattered, poetry spouting ministers wife, who measured her success( or rather lack thereof) by ministers wives in novels, & Prudence,at 29, younger,urbane,single working woman, London dweller, with multiple love affairs. An unlikely, yet enduring,mutually valuable friendship.Such an enjoyable,read! 😂

Tamra I have yet to read Pym, I need to correct that! 2y

The entrance to the children‘s section of our town library. Such a lovely sculpture, donated by a family in memory of their daughter, a reader, who died at a young age. Often I use this entrance because of its quiet beauty.

LeahBergen It‘s lovely. 2y
DebinHawaii Really beautiful 💜 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Aww. Lovely. 2y
kspenmoll @LeahBergen @DebinHawaii @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @BarbaraTheBibliophage I feel very lucky when I visit; not just a book feast but feast for the eyes as well. ❤️📚 Thanks (edited) 2y

Two sides of the great man dissected. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. Poor Harry. He seems so distant here, so aimless and lost.

#maybookflowers day 29 - #inmemorium

Just got to the death of Alexander Humboldt, the father of modern nature studies, and at the time of his centennial, one of the most famous men in the world (would that scientists today were so revered).

As most Scotsmen, he could keep everyone enthralled with his tales. I met him twice; he made me a promise the 1st time, upheld it the 2nd. I was stunned when I'd heard he'd passed in 2008, I was to see him that summer.

If you'd like to read about what to visit in Scotland that isn't on the usual tourist sites, he's your man.

Pinched the photo from Google. Wanted a Freedom Walk one, but hey weren't very good.

#MayBookFlowers #InMemorium

I've read all of Pat Conroy's novels at some point or another and recently re-read Beach Music. I was fortunate to see him speak just a few months before his death. A complicated man, to be sure. But, a master at observation and so beautifully able to paint a scene.

(PS: not my pic. Found this one by googling)

LauraBeth I was just thinking that I need to re-read Beach Music 3y

#rockinmay a reminder of a time when #America was at war with it's self. #inmemorium #maybookflowers . Not too long out of college I went to New Orleans and discovered the memory of the civil war lingers on. As an outsider that war seemed so far in the past.

Cinfhen So true! 3y

"In this soldier's story, first published in 1929, poet Robert Graves traces the monumental loss of innocence that occurred as a result of World War I."
#inmemorium I started this book several years ago, but I don't think I was ready for it. I definitely would like to read it for Memorial Day 2018.
