This photo just spoke to me

Do you ever start reading, only intending to skim a paragraph or two, but then you look up and 20 minutes have passed and your neck was cricked in an uncomfortable position and you didn’t even notice since the story had captured your interest so much? Yeah, me too. Sigh. I’m looking for one of those gripping reads right about now…

  1. Yes, I totally do that. And I love it.

    I came home from my Bible study small group tonight with a HUGE stack of books, because the hosts were getting rid of a mess of stuff. I am SO excited. I don’t even know where to start!

    Hope you find something soon!

  2. I’d trade neck-crick for a great read anytime! Yay for your new books! I’m heading to my library today…

  3. Love in the Time of Cholera, perhaps?

  4. Thanks, Art! I read Love in the Time of Cholera a few years ago. Right after it was all over that movie “Serendipity.” It was brilliantly written and I read it in just a few sittings on a weekend! I just really didn’t like Florentino or Fermina, so the HEA wasn’t as satisfying…

  5. Time hides from me. No, correction: it picks up its things, heads for the door and outright sprints away in moments like these. And if I didn’t love it so much for that…

  6. f.B. – what a poignant comment. all i could think of was the cliche “time flies when you’re having fun!” but i like yours much better.

  7. YES, I do that. And of course this photo spoke to you! I would have thought of you if I’d seen it ;-)

  8. Thanks LiLu! I can’t decide what I like best about the photo, her ultra-feminine frilly dress (I wish we could wear things like that nowadays!), the black and white contrast, the juxtaposition of angles and shapes with the ladder, books, and bookshelves, or combination of all of it?

  9. Try David Benioff’s City of Thieves?

  10. this is such a beautiful photograph! i’ll have to add it to my pin-it board so my sister will see too, she’s a much bigger reader than me!
