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 weekly meme hosted by Danya @ A Tapestry of Books.

Bloggers are invited to share a book on their holiday wish list every week until Xmas. Here's a new entry:

A book by Anne Tyler

One of:

Searching For Caleb
Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant
Breathing Lessons
Back When We Were Grownups

I read The Accidental Tourist a long time (too long ago) and was so drawn to the beautifully quirky characters she created that I realy need to revisit her work.  I have 4 Tyler titles that really interest me.   Has anyone read any of them?  What did you think?  I'm not one for prioritizing titles by the same author, but I'd love to get an idea of which one I should go with next :)


  1. I got Breathing Lessons quite some time ago...but it's still in the TBR pile. I just haven't gotten to it yet. That would be my first Anne Tyler book, so I'm afraid I'm not much help.

    Here's my wish:

  2. Thanks for linking up :) I'm afraid I haven't read any Anne Tyler so I can't really be of help either, sorry! I hope you find at least one of them under your tree though :D
