|Mr. Buck deciding to leave|
Have been very lax in reporting books read. Somehow in all the bruhaha I managed to read 3 books over the last few weeks. Pastors and Masters by Ivy Compton Burnett. Oh, boy, what can I say - this is a literary classic, her first, written in 1925. Could barely get through it. These stylized pictures of society are just a little hard for me to digest. Next Love of my youth by Mary Gordon. Favorite author, and she didn't disappoint. Delving into two people meeting later in life after an early romance together. And, thirdly, Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay, which has been out a while, and coincidentally, just out in movie form. Good book , recommend it, but a warning - it is intense as it deals with the World War II killing of Jews by the French in Paris as its start. Develops into a fascinating modern story. My understanding is that many publishers turned it down at first due to subject matter. If you can make it through the first part, well worth it.
And lastly - baby watch. A month minus 2 days and counting. I'm on pins and needles!!

The kids (sorry, young adults) are going to the midnight showing of the new Harry Potter movie at the college. Waaay too late for me - hope it's good!
