“But she was wonderfully striking, with a presence that still reached out from all those years ago and captivated him. She had been dead for forty years, but she was still his life, and her death had given him his purpose. It had made Andrew Peardew the Keeper of Lost Things.”

The writing... 💜💜 #thekeeperoflostthings

I listened to this while I picked weeds out of the garden over a couple of semi-dry days.

jewright I watched the movie. Is the book good? 7mo
CharleaFinley @jewright I‘m only two chapters in. It‘s an audiobook. I like it so far! 7mo
nycnorma I love both the movie and the book, but it has been a long time since I read it. Maybe I'm due for a re-read. (There are some things in the movie that are taken right out of the book and a few times I thought it would seem weird if I hadn't read the book already.) 6mo

On Brassard‘s Farm has me wanting to connect with my home and the land that it‘s on. Tonight I planted green beans and yellow onions. Tomorrow, before the storm, I‘ll plant a couple of rows of lettuce.

Home is where I‘m lost and found here lately.

I am wildly in love with F. Scott Fitzgerald and how The Great Gatsby came to be. I just finished reading this story for the 5th time. Before reading it again, I took some time to learn more about him. Because of this, I‘ve added Zelda to my list of books to read. ❤️ #thegreatgatsby

When the Men Were Gone: A Novel | Marjorie Herrera Lewis

I was socially obligated to attend an indoor pool party in January. I was anxious about being forced to socialize and make small talk. As always, a book to the rescue. ❤️

Also, this is the February pick for the book club I‘m in. #whenthemenweregone #bookclub

Crazeedi I read this one, it was good, a very interesting story based on true events. 10mo

This will be a story that I listen to... again. ❤️

The main character is so well-developed that I feel like I know him. Through this story, I feel like I have a friendship with Ernest Cline. I want to call him up and talk about this.

Salinger‘s Holden Caulfield would know what I‘m talking about here.

Daisey I ❤️ this book! 10mo
