Well, back to my original purpose for this blog...
I am recommending two books for my many readers.
Tuesdays with Morrie came my way because two of my high school students are reading it in English. They had to have a copy of the book and asked me to buy it. They work after school and weren't sure when they would be able to get to a bookstore. I bought it on a Friday and couldn't get it to them until Monday... so.... I read it on Saturday. It is a great book for thinking about life. Not sure 10th graders are going to be that wild about it but if you haven't read it, you should.
The other book was a Christmas present. I had it on the list to read but had not gotten around to buying it or getting it from the library. The thing I like about Dispatches from Pluto is the writer's perspective on my home state, especially the Delta. We lived in the Delta for a short time in the 70's.
It is a different kind of place. Not at all like the Mississippi of my childhood and youth. Mr. M. wasn't as fond as I was of this book. Maybe you have to be from Mississippi to connect with it.
Now a few photos of flowers to finish up this post.
Weird February weather today but these flowers brightened my day.
Read a good book?
