Captain Von Trapp and Maria: The Sound of Music- from when she asks “what his whistle sound to call him is” to the meeting in the garden (oh my stars, I love that scene- basically the movie is over after that scene!). Continue reading
Friday, Friday, Friday… Someone play the song “Friday, I’m In Love” by The Cure 🙂 (I love that song!)
Ok, back to the bookish things now that I’ve chair-danced for a bit….
1. Deep South Magazine and their #literaryfriday- Faulkner and Flannery, Wiley Cash, Gone With The Wind, and much more… Plus… 8 Books To Fall In Love With in February– including THE WIFE, THE MAID and THE MISTRESS by Ariel Lawhon (one of the creative geniuses behind She Reads!) Read here for more info about book and the details on the upcoming Twitter chat- where you could win a copy!
2. In case you missed the good news– Me, Traveling With T, got the very good news the other day (I totally felt like Charlie when he got the last golden ticket!) Confused? Curious? Here it is: I’m going to be a World Book Night Giver! So excited! Myself and several bloggy friends got the great news the other day- and let me inform you: Waiting all day on the news because your mom married someone with basically the last letter of the alphabet kind of sucks. (Right? Anyone feel my pain on this?)
3. It’s been cold. No, this is not news. I know. It’s February. But, seeing this picture the other day has made my heart long for Spring and the first flowers and the butterflies and all the goodness of Spring!
4. Traveling With T has a copy of DAYS OF WINE AND ROQUEFORT to give away! Go enter. Now. I’ll wait. Seriously.
5. Valentine’s Day is 1 week away- read about Traveling With T likes and dislikes Valentine’s Day.
6. What are your #fridayreads? I’m reading THE WIFE, THE MAID, and THE MISTRESS by Ariel Lawhon.
Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,
T @ Traveling With T
Last week I confessed to never reading Jane Austen or The Great Gatsby. So far, I’m working on changing the “never read Jane Austen” confession- I’m reading Pride and Prejudice and enjoying it.Eventually, I will begin reading The Great Gatsby.
This week my literary confession is: I’ve never read Gone with the Wind. I have watched the movie a gajillion times; but the book- never read it.
It’s a secret shame (well not so secret anymore), but I’ve always wanted to read it- I’ve just been intimidated by the size. I generally enjoy reading books around the 200-300 page size- a good quick read. I read longer books; but I still prefer the smaller books.
Gone with the Wind fans- book or movie better? Will the book just fly by as I get immersed in the story? As far as literary confessions go- does not reading Gone with the Wind rank as “shocking” or “not a big deal”?
As always, I appreciate your thoughts- feel free to chime in.
