[Courage is] knowing you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. —Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
WHAT WE LOVE THIS WEEK
Harper Lee, of course. This week, last week, and always. To Kill a Mockingbird has a permanent spot on our top ten favorites of all time list. We're especially loving that above quote because lately life has us feeling a bit licked. More like mowed down, trampled, pummeled...(insert any beleaguered adjective here). We started this blog with the (naive?) hope of posting every day and lately we've been lucky to churn out two or three a week. The dogged optimist in us would assure you that our sporadic posting will soon be a thing of the past. Oh, but that sliver of a realist demands we come clean and admit that, for a while anyway, things will probably stay just as they are. We hope you'll stick with us, because while we may indeed be licked before we begin, we really are going to see this through.
Subscribers. Would it be too bold of us to suggest you become one? It's a surefire way of never missing a book review, especially as we've become a bit more unpredictable...
Your feedback. We'd love to know what you think of our little online, obligation-free book club. We promise we aren't fishing for compliments. Just curious if you are reading the book along with us and are interested in book club Monday posts. Should we continue with this feature?
Friends who immediately think of us when they see one of these in their neighborhood.
Now this is our kind of planner!
Dr. Seuss. It's the dear ol' doc's birthday next week and we can't think of a better way to celebrate his day than starting off with some of these. How fun would it be to host a birthday party in his honor for your kids' book club? They could play this and make one of these.
