Life Changing

It is funny how one thing can lead to the next. 
I popped into the local libary on Friday to see what was new and interesting. 
by Roxanne J Coady and Joy Johannessen. ' 

A quick flick and I new this was going to need more time to take in. 
It has been like taking a journey into my past....Marjorie Morningstar, 
The Catcher in the Rye, The Count of Monte Cristo, Atlas Shrugged, 
A Room of One's Own, Hemingway's Collected Stories, 
 To Kill a Mockingbird, Jane Eyre, The Great Gatsby 
and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn to name a few.

It is funny how we get so caught up with the latest books 
that we forget that there were so many great ones before them. 
I tried writing them down once, all those books going back 30 odd years 
and found it a mind boggling task. I have enjoyed this book 
and what the writers have had to say. I have now discovered 
a great little book store in Madison Connecticut, RJ Julia Booksellers. 
Not close but...I have registered for their newsletter, 
checked out their blog and am happy to have found both.

Now, back to the library to see what's next...
