Thirty years ago I drove home from my weekend share house in Avalon, New Jersey to spend Father’s Day with my Dad.


I stopped by Avalon Seafood and bought an oversized container of she crab soup and a pound and half of cooked shrimp. Dad loved his food, especially food that he could really get his hands around. I was sure this was a perfect way to celebrate the day. I drove over the causewa...

I started out really liking this book. The book blurb was intriguing and I was immediately drawn into Josephine's story. There is no doubt Ann Hood is a good writer, but this was not a novel. It was a series of short stories that had no connection to ...more

Having not read Me Before You, I have nothing to compare this sequel to. What I can say, that as a stand alone novel, it is an enjoyable and at times poignant read that drew me in and kept me interested. I am a big fan of well-developed characters an ...more

“Multi-tasking is great in the kitchen when you are trying to time the chicken to be ready at the same time as the potatoes. But do not assume it is a great way to manage a workday.”
Joanne Tombrakos, It Takes An Egg Timer, A Guide to Creating the Time for Your Life

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”
Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!

“I can’t write without a reader. It’s precisely like a kiss—you can’t do it alone.”
John Cheever

“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.”
Nora Ephron
