Anne of Green Gables

Apropos of Nothing

This post originally appeared on the site, where I and an incredible, amazing woman blogger write letters to each other that we are too lazy to actually mail. Please visit and follow when you have a moment! Enjoy!


My dearest, my beloved, my life-long friend:

So, I finally found the motivation to look at our site and write a bit of something, and what do I find but the words that you left two weeks ago that were exactly what I needed to hear on THIS day. Funny, how we work, together. I don’t know what universal force made it so that we would be in each others lives, but I thank them wholeheartedly for you every day.

I’ve always been envious of how you live in the moment; how you are yourself, no matter what; how you take on the world, on your own terms, and never compromise your beliefs.

Happy National Book Lover’s Day!

Happy National Book Lover’s Day!

In celebration, I thought I’d pick some favorite book titles to share with you.  But, how do you pick favorites when new books are coming out all the time, your old loves are waiting patiently to be picked up again, and still there are 100s and 1,000s of books you’ve never even laid eyes on?  Do you hear the panic in my voice?  That’s the panic felt by every book lover, every day.  It is especially the panic of those of us who work in an actual bookstore.  So, I’m going to let you see my secret stash of books from the last year.


Yes, this is (mostly) from the last year. *Sigh*  It’s a never ending struggle, this love of books.  Share your book stash, if you dare!

My top 5 books of all time (in this minute):

Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
Small Gods by Terry Pratchett
A Plague of Angels by Sheri S. Tepper
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
Any title in the Armand Gamache series by Louise Penny
