The House I Grew Up In

I bought a new phone last weekend and the people at the phone store wouldn’t wipe the old one until I checked it to make sure there was nothing on it I wanted, even though I insisted there wasn’t–I guess they’d had some run-ins in the past! And when I downloaded everything off it at home, it turned out there were a few photos I guess I took in a panic the last day in the house I grew up in, whi...

Very not my jam. I wanted to read this because I like cats, but many cats die violently in this book, and the story wasn't strong enough to carry me past that easily. However, this is a children's book and many children love it, and there aren't even ...more

For recovering English students!! OMG, I loved this book--it's smart and funny. So many recognizable moments from my undergrad, even little chunks of essays. SO RELATABLE. Also relatable as a former retail worker. And as the daughter of two academics ...more

Rebecca Rosenblum Thanks for the suggestion! That title is really familiar, and yet I don't know the book! I will put it on my list but you are right, it's long so I won't take the chance of borrowing it and then driving you crazy.

Friday night was awesome--you guys really know how to party!

Maureen hey: i was just thinking about you, and books, and i'm wondering if you've read the elegance of the hedgehog by muriel barbery? it was one of the books i've read in the last year that i really liked, for the characters, mostly; sometimes the author philosophizes a bit much, though she's a professor, so i tend to excuse her. if you haven't read it, i think it's worth putting on your list to-read list. i can lend it to you if you like, but i keep finding myself to dipping back into it, so every time i lend it out, i get very "have you read that yet?" no doubt you already have a long to-read list, but hey, i'd love to hear what you think of it, if you ever get a chance. :)

it was nice to see you! mo/xo
