I am preparing today to go to Allentown, PA to see my dad in the hospital.
His tumor has returned and does look operable now (possibly on next Monday, September 10th).
Not able mentally to do deal with the re-admission and make the long drive from Maine.
I am lucky to grow up in a houseful of books.
Today I prepared to return all the books I checked out of the library (around a dozen) and finished two books. Carl Sandburg’s “Honey and Salt” which I browsed through, and was solid. *** And “Skellig” by David Almond, a YA book I really enjoyed. Very clever, and imaginative with great characters. Look forward to reading more of Almond’s work in the future. ***1/2.
It’s funny. I am thinking about what books to bring for when I am at my parent’s house, knowing there will be thousands of books there. Once a reader, always a reader.
