Worth Mentioning Again . . .

 
 
 
 
you may remember the group
of books I posted
about a few weeks ago
 
I was happy I purchased some books ahead of time
checked some books out from the library
and listened to suggestions from friends

having books at my fingertips
allowed me to grab a book
head for the porch
curl up and
enjoy a good read
 
I found
Harold Fry
exceptional

we each enjoy different reads
sometimes a book is suggested
we try it and wonder why
someone liked it

once in awhile though
a book comes along and
it is spot on
and for me
this was one of them

I don't cry and weep often
this book moved me to an unexpected place
emotional   tender   
poignant 
humble

his journey
touched me to my core

it is several days later
 harold fry
is still by my side
~

Lynne, I haven't read Harold Fry, but have heard really good things. I am hoping it will be one of our book group reads this fall. I have been working in my classroom and am between books. I am thinking I want one more really, really good book before turning my full attention to the classroom. Thanks for the suggestion.

I read it and I loved it...I think their relationship had bits that everyone can relate to.

Wow, good to know. We were just talking at my book club about books that have moved us. This sounds like one I would want to read.

Those are my favorite kind of books, the unfound treasures, the joyous reads, the ones that stay in your heart for a long time.

I just saw your comment on Bonnie's blog and decided to check out your book reading. In scrolling your blog, I enjoyed your beautiful photos! Having lived in Charleston before moving to the midwest, I have always loved Mary Alice Monroe's books. Thanks for the recommendations.

Best,
Bonnie

It's always so amazing to me when a book can move one so. I'm glad you found yours this summer!

HI Lynne! I am visiting from Nina's blog.

I love hearing about books, I am so easily lost in the library. Too many choices. And it moved you to tears? That is extraordinary!

So nice to visit your blog today! Hope you'll come and visit me sometime too :)
