Reading progress update: I've read 29%.
The Bette Davis Club - Jane Lotter

“Does Georgia golf?” I say.

“Yeah, she loves it. That and a few other vices.”

I didn’t know Georgia golfs, nor can I imagine what her other vices might be. I realize I know next to nothing about my niece. All day long I’ve been picturing the thirteen-year-old shy lass I saw in New York some years back, but the reality seems closer to a redheaded, vodka-swilling sex kitten, wielding a five iron.

Interesting Quote [Currently Reading]
The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson Burnett

“One of the new things people began to find out in the last century was that thoughts—just mere thoughts—are as powerful as electric batteries—as good for one as sunlight is, or as bad for one as poison. To let a sad thought or a bad one get into your mind is as dangerous as letting a scarlet fever germ get into your body. If you let it stay there after it has got in you may never get over it as long as you live."


― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden. Published 1911.


This quote stood out to me as I am reading this book. It is very true, but if you have depression, how does one stop the sad and bad thoughts? It is something to think about.

Miss Buncle's Book - DE Stevenson

"I wonder where the old codger was," he said to his wife as he sat down to his tea, and spread his bread with a liberal helping of butter and stretched out his arm for the jam.

"Iding," suggested Mrs Simmons promptly. 

"But I looked all over the place - I looked in the toolshed even -"

"More fool you!" retorted his better half scornfully, "if 'e 'ad bin in the toolshed it would 'ave meant 'e didn't want to be found. What call 'ad you to be 'unting for the pore gentleman in the toolshed? None. If 'e didn't want to be found it was yore place not to find 'im - see?"

Simmons saw.

LoL. This is a lot of fun.

Dancing Fish and Ammonites: A Memoir - Penelope Lively

"I am no longer acquisitive. I was never exactly voracious, but I could fall prey to sudden lust: one simply could not live a moment longer without that sampler spotted in an antique shop, or that picture or rug or chair. No longer. I can admire, but I no longer covet. Books of course are another matter; books are not acquisitions, they are necessities."

No Time to Spare: Thinking About What Matters - Ursula K. Le Guin,Karen Joy Fowler

"Meaning - this is perhaps the common note, the bane I am seeking. What is the Meaning of this book, this event in the book, this story ... ? Tell me what it Means.

But that is not my job, honey. That's your job."


- Ursula K. Le Guin
