This post unintentionally inspired a guessing game, because I chose a picture that was too small. For those of you who are still curious, the book was Housekeeping, by Marilynne Robinson. And the winner is Word Lily. Yay!!!!!
I started the book a couple of weeks ago. By page 18 I realized I didn’t have the patience to work my way through the dense (although lyrical) prose. So off it goes to a new reader.
Congrats to Word Lily…please send me your address?
A little more housekeeping (ha, ha)…
A belatedly huge thank you to whoever nominated me for BBAW awards. I received nominations for Best Community Builder (not really sure why, on that one), Most Humorous/Funny Blog, Best Literary Fiction Blog, and Most Eclectic Taste. Thank you, thank you, thank you…the nominations warmed the cockles of my heart. And made my day.
So as a way to say thanks and I love you too, I’m going to give away my copy of one of my favoritist books of the year. I raved about it yesterday, and would love for one of you to read it. All you have to do to get your name in the running is tell me what your favorite book (so far) of the year is.
Also. Have you seen this?!? And have I told you that I’m planning a trip to Croatia next May/June? Wah!!
