And Read

Having seen this book mentioned on Sally Clarkson's blog 
(George MacDonald’s Diary of an Old Soul), 
I am officially on the hunt for it!
If you should have a copy or run across one at a reasonable price, I would love to purchase it.

And THIS one also:  Bandersnatch by Diana Glyer.  
No doubt I've come late to Lanier's blog.   
After reading this post, I'm adding one more book to my reading list as well 
as a determination to return to her blog and read more of her story/
Her writing captures my imagination.

I have entered a new season of life and have a new phone to accompany me.
I know how to use its camera - just can't figure out how to send the photos back to myself/
Sigh.  Soon I'll have photos again.  Until then, I shall read.  
Plan and prepare meals.
Continue to organize and enjoy our home.  
And "do life" with my father who has come to live with us.  

And read...

  1. Those two books sound great and I hope you find copies. You could search on Abebooks online. I read one George McDonald novel and loved it, it was a great love story about nobility of character.

    1. You're SO right about searching online!
      I thought trying his poetry would be an interesting excursion...

  2. I read both of these blogs today and I am so interested in Bandersnatch, especially as I think my daughter would truly love it and be inspired by it, as I am sure I would too! I'm looking for Christmas gifts, right now as well, so I'm looking at books for everyone!

    1. I KNOW (about Bandersnatch)! The story in the post about gathering and sharing paper during the War & postwar has haunted me since I read it....I can't wait to get my hands on this book.

  3. Oh Sally Clarkson, I use to see in her conferences and have some of her books, but I don't have the book you are looking for. Enjoy your reading, you always inspire me to find a good book. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I'm just getting acquainted with her! Actually, I believe it might have been her daughter who wrote this particular post - and I was impressed. "Impacted" might be a more suitable word....

  4. I know how it is to have to learn all the new technology when acquiring a new phone! I google all my questions and learn that way! Diary of an Old Soul sounds wonderful.

  5. Hi Rebecca,
    Wow, looks like you have some changes going on.........will have to come back and read
    about them when I get a chance. Reading is such a fun thing for me too. Don't do it
    quite as much as I used to tho, but trying to get back into it.
    Thanks for coming by to visit and for your sweet comments as always,
    Blessings, Nellie
