The Story of Edgar Sawtelle | David Wroblewski

Two books, going backwards. I just finished the prequel to The Book of Edgar Sawtelle, which I first read in 2008. After waiting 16 years for this, it was everything I needed, excessive at times. I need to ponder Familiaris a bit before I can really review it - meanwhile I want to take another run at the original.

Different Seasons | Stephen King
post image

#TLT Thanks for the tag @dabbe
All three of my favorite novellas are in one book - Different Seasons has Rita Hayworth (The Shawshank Redemption), The Body (Stand by Me) and The Apt Pupil in it. I am generally not a fan of short stories but this book was a 1982 standout. I wore it out and bought a used copy last summer to read them all again. Stephen King is synonymous with childhood and shaped the 6th grade reader in me.

Bklover Wow- we did make similar pics. I forgot about Apt Pupil! I agree- I love going g back and reading the novellas and short stories. LOVED Different Seasons! 2mo
Reggie I read these 3 for the first time this past winter and totally agree. Standouts. 2mo

slategreyskies When I was in Botswana years ago, a group of my friends and I were singing songs from musicals to pass the time on a bus journey.

I‘d always assumed it was made up for the movie, but it‘s genuine. Cool, huh? 😎 3mo

peaKnit @julesG I‘m doing a three week detox program with my long time yoga practitioner - she moved so it‘s on zoom and I do yoga at home. Anyways, I think the best tip is to really give yourself a lot of self care while you‘re detoxing, take the baths, get the rest, somehow that feels like a reward. As I‘m almost wrapping up I currently have less cravings. I‘ve slipped a teeny bit here and there so also important - give yourself grace🩷 3mo
peaKnit @julesG and yes, I‘m coasting into lent with plans to maintain some of the things I‘ve adopted, I hope to stay off the diet soda and be more plant based. I also hope to be mindful that I like how I feel in control right now, 40 more days wouldn‘t hurt ;) it‘s weird, part of feeling more in control, I feel nicer and more patient.🤷🏼‍♀️ 3mo
julesG Thank you! I've given this a lot of thought, looked at my current habits and came to the conclusion that I'm not using a lot of sugar already. Hence I'm not going cold turkey, but cut chocolate and desserts this week. Next week I'll look at what processed food I can cut - won't be much, I'm already making most from scratch. Maybe I should cut carbs in total, but I'm not ready to try that. 3mo
