Welcome friends! I have started this entry in the global technosphere because I have been in love with books since the age of 2. Among the busy business of being a new teacher, this is my outlet for sharing thoughts on a love of reading a wide variety of books. My inspiration can be summed up with a yearbook quote from a teacher written when I was 8: "To the only girl at recess I see reading a book. Good for you!"
My blog title is quoted from a classmate who asked me this once. Believe it or not, I've also heard it as a teacher :D

All I Want For Christmas

A seasonal meme hosted by Danya @ A Tapestry of Books.

Bloggers are invited to share books on their holiday wish lists.

I missed the boat on this one again?!?  Yesterday was a mess of groceries, early Xmas shopping, and installing a new DVD player...  Excuses aside, here is this week's entry:

A Twist of Lemmon: A Tribute to my Father by Chris Lemmon

Jack Lemmon was one of those rare actors that you confidently believe was a genuine person, that what you see is exactly the kind of person he is off-screen.  Being an admirably private person, it is a joy to find that in honour of his father, who died in 2001, Chris Lemmon, who has a jaw-dropping resemblance to his "Pop," has written a reflective memoir with a foreword by Lemmon's early protege, Kevin Spacey.


  1. No worries about linking up a little later :) This one sounds like a really sweet memoir! Hope you find it under your tree.

  2. Hi!
    I love seeing movies with Jack Lemmon. My favorite is Grumpy Old Men. I'll have to add this one to my TBR list. Thanks for stopping by. And don't give up on the book, it does get faster paced. Have a great day!

  3. I remember when this came out. I checked it out and then ran out of time before I got a chance to read it. It seems to be the story of my life - I'm too gluttonous with my reading appetite.
