“You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.” ― Mark Twain, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
WHAT WE LOVE THIS WEEK
A rediscovered Mark Twain fairy tale. What we love even more? It's based on a bedtime story he told his daughters nearly 140 years ago. Imagine being tucked in nightly with stories spun by Papa Twain. Sadly we have to wait until September to get our hands on The Purloining of Prince Oleomargarine, but after waiting over a hundred years, what's another 8 months?
WONDERful news. April can't get here fast enough!
This may be the first time we've ever been excited about a blind date. We're thinking it would make for a great book club party idea as well.
Books about books. Some of our favorites made this list and some will be added to our TBR list pronto.
This love letter to public libraries. Close to the top of our bucket list: visiting libraries all around the world.
Speaking of public libraries we're itchin' to visit, check out this list of the top ten book borrowed from the Boston Public Library in 2016.
Finding out there was a saucy side to Jane Austen.
