TSS: READING, RESPITE, & REINVENTING OURSELVES — APRIL 28

coffee cupGood morning!  It is a beautiful day here, and I’m looking forward to what the day will bring.

Sunday Salon is a great way to begin the week, and it’s like a gathering post for bloggers to share their adventures.

I’ve done quite a bit of reading, a little blogging, and yesterday I took a break to see  a movie I’ve been eagerly awaiting.

The Company You Keep, with a wonderful cast that includes Robert Redford, Julie Christie, Susan Sarandon, and many others, took me back to a time in my life….and I just sat there absorbing it all.  I haven’t been buying as many DVDs lately (I have 800+ on my shelves!), but this is one I’m going to add.

And late yesterday, I started reading Tapestry of Fortunes, by Elizabeth Berg…and I’m savoring it!

tapestry of fortunes

A story of reinventing your life, which sometimes means downsizing and recreating everything.

I like this blurb from the Amazon page:  In this beautifully written novel, leaving home brings revelations, reunions, and unexpected turns that affirm the inner truths of women’s lives. “Maybe Freud didn’t know the answer to what women want, but Elizabeth Berg certainly does,” said USA Today. Elizabeth Berg has crafted a novel rich in understanding of women’s longings, loves, and abiding friendships, which weave together into a tapestry of fortunes that connects us all.

What does your day—and your week—look like?  Come on by and chat.

    • I feel like a won a jackpot this week with my books…not a bad one in the bunch! I enjoyed all of them soooo much.

      After visiting your blog, Harvee, I went online and preordered The White Bread Summer…it fits in nicely with the movie I saw yesterday (the times they were a-changing!!).

  2. I have not read an Elizabeth Berg novel for far too long! So many of her books have been such favourites of mine. I’m adding TAPESTRY OF FORTUNES to my to-read list right now!

    • Is it gone already? I guess it’s considered “alternative,” as those don’t stay long. And those are actually my favorites!

      Hopefully it will be on PPV soon. I put in a request for the DVD. Thanks for visiting, Susan.
