What a beautiful quotation. I must read that book soon.

Oh, my fave cul-de-sac; I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. How do you describe why you like a book when you aren't sure why you like it? That it feels like a full course meal - a rich feast - and yet it is highly without a lot of drama. The words are poetic, it reads (for me) like a dreamy greek poem. I am enchanted and can't tell you why. If it wasn't so big I would wear it like a necklace and never take it off. But a girlfriend told me yesterday she hated the book - completely and totally hated it. Maybe it is like art - highly subjective.

The point is the library has all of these reads and more - so you don't have to invest beyond your time, which is a financial relief if you don't like something - and a blessing if you do. I have found that the library has allowed me to bring home collections I would never try (or buy)otherwise ~ it promotes courage! ;)

This book has been on my nightstand for 3 days! This is just the inspiration I needed to stay up past 9:30!
Thanks!
(BTW, the teeny house you commented on isn't a rental- or else we could share it as a "bloggers cabin"!)

I think you might become the Patron Saint of Libraries, Michele! In these days where public library funding is so limited, how lucky libraries (and their users) are to have such an articulate advocate as you!

Hope you enjoy it, Kerry! Wish we could share that cute house as a bloggy pad - how fun!!

Thank you, my fave Cul-de-sac for your faithful encouragement. It means so much to me.

I don't want you to think that I don't follow you recomm's just because. I am studying to graduate from an Argentine school I attended. I am going in Nov or Dec to give three oral finals in front of several professors. I am currently studying Italian, Russian and German Literature and reading everything in the curricula, and then I have to write three thesis on Argentine and Latin-American Literature and Literary Theorie for March. I just realized that if I go in November, I only have two months left, so I am cancelling all other readings like I should have months ago. :(
