This picture brings back memories. My mother had this picture hanging in her "Sewing Room", a room that was just hers. Where she would do all her crafts. She also had a very special reading chair that my father made for her, above that chair was this picture. I always wondered what the girl was reading!? (When I got to be in this room) You were only allowed in by invitation!!!

My favorite book is "Patty Jane's House of Curl" by Lorna Landvik. It's so real and touching—makes me laugh and cry. I can read it again and again without getting tired of it.

I love this pendant, by the way. It would be the envy of (or maybe make a great gift for) my best friend, who is a librarian. (=

What a pretty pendant! My favorite read is The Blue Sword by Robin McKinnley. I think I've read it six times.

The book that inspired my childhood reading was "Are you there god? It's me Margaret." In my adult life..."Are you there vodka? It's me Chelsea."

Plus, you gotta love the play on words!

I love reading memoirs, such as The Last Empress by Anchee Min and Chinese Cinderella --- A Story of An Unwanted Daughter by Adeline Yen Mah. They are always so touching and make me cry.

P/S: I love the pendant. It's very beautiful.

My favorite book is Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities. It is a story of a specific historical event - The French Revolution - yet Dickens weaves his magic and the characters become everyman from past, present and future.

I admit it... I have read twilight and it's follow-ups multiple times. I'm a teenage girl, I can't resist. Now that that confession is out, I also like "real" literature. This necklace definitely makes me think of Bronte's Jane Eyre which I adore!
Reading is powerful stuff.
