August 8, 2018: Book Haul Writeup

I can’t wait to take on the new book I purchased from Boston on Sunday. I picked up ‘When I Was Puerto Rican’ at Brookline Booksmith. I strongly believe in supporting independent book sellers, so when Andy and I were in Boston over the weekend, I wanted to bring home some items from this great bookshop. Along with this story, I picked up a book on Japanese death poetry, and a short story compilation from Harumi Narukami. I can’t wait to begin reading them!

July 16, 2018: Book Garden

A very humid day that changed to a hot afternoon. Certainly not a time to head outside later. I feel that we’ll be okay though. As long as I stick to the routine I planned out, the afternoon should go smoothly. Unless something unexpected happens (which always does)!

Thinking about the wonderful book store time yesterday. Andy and I stopped by this lovely book store in Frenchtown called The Book Garden. There was a cute little gnome sitting on the steps, which held a story behind it (the shop keeper told us the story about a woman who gave away her gnome collection to the town as a going away present.

Such a beautiful day this is. If only we could visit there again today!
