Translation from Portuguese: Monday is a day of the week. Just trying to get a friend’s attention…
BOOKS in the HOUSE since last Monday:
Mrs. MISS! Pettigrew Lives for a Day by Winifred Watson, a Persephone Classics I received in the Holiday Exchange from my friend Karen. I’m saving this for 2012 and the What’s in a Name 5 Challenge in the CALENDAR category.
1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. For my read-along with Maree. I just told my friend Holly that we were buying this book for each other for Christmas and I was to have it first. She owes me $15.
Maman’s Homesick Pie by Donia Bijan, thanks for a giveaway over at Love Laughter and Insanity. Thanks Trish!
The Secret Life of Lobsters by Trevor Corson, thanks to a very dear blogger bud who amazes me with her total enthusiasm for throwing herself into the goodness that is life and being so generous to share and think of others she’s never even met who value her place here in the interwebs for always warming hearts with simple cherished acts of giving, Debi. She is still very much important. Thank you.
NOW – those of you who are signed up or are thinking about the What’s in a Name Challenge 5 (I have somehow become obsessed with everyone signing up for this one…), I here by tell you if you have NOT read The Secret Life of Lobsters, you should and it will totally count for the CREEPY-CRAWLY category since they often call lobsters ‘bugs’. So there. And the fact that it is utterly fascinating is a plus, too, yes? I just might have to write a review of this since I read it pre-blog and then I can count it for Trisha’s meme for highlighting An Old Favorite.
I also bought the Artisan Bread cookbook for my hub the chef and I look forward to baking some yummy goodness.
Finally, I got the coolest email from my friend Ana who you may have instantly thought of yourself when you saw the title to this post. Here’s what she sent me: Thanks Nymeth! #luvana
Thanks for thinking of me! Obrigado!
