Dear Diary, This is the first post in a new category for the site called “Books”…very simple quick little overviews of the books I have read or am reading, with a photo of the book jacket to remind you of it, if you see it. I won’t give away the stories…or expound to long about them…
Lets call them “tiny reviews”…to take off any pressure
My blog is part of my life and my art. It is my work, and it is my hobby. As always I strive to make it better to offer you more to read and learn here, about art, life, creativity and rug hooking. I love the idea that it might be a place you go with your cup of tea and take a few minutes to yourself.
I try to post everyday, and I plan to continue to do that. I do want to make it a little sweeter, a little richer, while keeping the same format. I have some ideas I am working on that will give you more content and more frequent posts. I know some of you read once a month, or once a week so when you come there is lots new. Now though I am discovering so many of you check in everyday…..and I’m thinking about how I’d like there be more for you to read and to peruse.
I love my diary/blog…it is a record of my little life in a house by the side of the road, it is a way I get to be a friend to many, thanks for reading……
Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society
My first tiny review…. I just finished the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. I’d have to say I got off to a slow start with it but found that the more I read the better I liked it. It was a series of letters used to illustrate the most interesting characters that lived in Guernsey, and island in the English channel during the second world war which was under German occupation. The writing style was interesting because of the use of letters. Instead of it being a series of letters between two people, it was many letters from different people, all revolving around a central character. There was early a bit of magic in how these letters were strung together to tell a captivating story, and a good deal of history about the Channel Islands.
