-- But you will be ready to say, what was your hope in doing this? -- What did you look forward to? -- To any thing, every thing -- to time, chance, circumstances, slow effects, sudden bursts, perseverance and weariness ... Every possibility of good was before me, and the first of blessings secured. {Jane Austen, Emma}

Anticipation {favorite formerly? local author who reads at my favorite bookstore edition}



{April}

Have you read her?  Or did you follow her poetic tweets {@elinorlipman} during/after the election? Here's a bookish one:

I knew a general in the mood/I wrote his bio in the nude/
We fell in love. I sent him mail/That FBI's a tattletale.

Thank you to Jill @breakingspine for letting me know about this new book.

I have read her! I read The Family Man a couple of years ago and loved it. I just looked this one up and it sounds excellent.

That poem/tweet made me laugh - an excellent way to start my day!

Thomas (My Porch) keeps raving about Elinor Lipman, and I've been meaning to read her for years. Now that I know you are a fan, too, she is a must read for 2013!

I love Then She Found Me best of all her books. I also have The Inn at Lake Devine and The Way Men Act on my shelves - the latter I read when I get nostalgic for western Mass.
