I finished reading this book yesterday. What a delightful read. It was wonderful watching Anne grow up from an awkward yet highly intelligent girl to a smart young woman. I was drawn to her fascination with beauty found in nature as well as her talkative and somewhat daring character. My favourite quote from the book:
“Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it… Yet.”
I finally started reading this book after it’s been sitting on my bookshelf for several years since I bought it from a nearby bookstore.
I am reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling.
I am not doing very well with this goal – I haven’t read a single book since I set up my LibraryThing fifty book challenge…!
Right now my goal for reading is to read for ten minutes per day. I am finding this much more achievable and I actually read!
I’ve joined LibraryThing’s 50 book challenge for 2013! This means I have to read approximately one book per week… Eek! Here I go!
I’ve been meaning to read this book for a few years now so I’m glad it is finally happening! Enjoying it so far. Today was drizzly outside and I didn’t have to do anything but read or paint so it’s provided me a good chance to get my teeth into the book. What a wonderful day it’s been.
I got this book out of the library and even took it on a trip with me to Australia! I thought the book was cleverly written and very imaginative. The more I think back on the story, the more I get out of it. I would say more but I don’t want to give the story away! It was a fascinating read with a beautiful storyline but perhaps not in the most conventional sense of the word.
Great book to encourage readers to follow their dreams.
One of my favourite quotes from the book:
“Why do we have to listen to our hearts?” the boy asked.
“Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you will find your treasure.”
I went to the public library today to look for some books on travelling and to also find a book to keep this goal alive and well. I didn’t really have that much time to browse through the shelves and I couldn’t find “Life of Pi”, the book I was looking for, so I decided to go home with just the books I had managed to find. However, as I was walking out, I found this book near the library exit so back I went to the check out counter.
Surprisingly, I have not read a book on the life of a fashion designer nor anything about Coco Chanel (the closest thing I’ve come to is probably a biography of Audrey Hepburn) so I am quite excited about starting.
This book was recommended to me by a friend. It was my first short story (actually, it’s called a novella) in a while. Despite being told that it was a really good example of contemporary writing I didn’t enjoy it all that much.
What I got from it was something along the lines of the pointlessness of life mixed with occurrences on cyberspace and what we think actually happens in our lives as opposed to what actually happens. Or something like that in the style of a blog.
