Lazy Easter Sunday Thoughts

Hello, peeps! Peep, peep! How is your Sunday going? I’m prepping for Easter dinner later. And by prepping I mean drinking coffee and thinking about the housework I have to do.

Bloggingwise, I have a review for the latest Flavia de Luce novel coming up. Watch for that. I finally sat down and read The Illusion of Separateness. There’s a crying book for you. So good, even though I hate crying books.

I’m listening to Station Eleven at the moment. I’ve read anything from Mandel before so I don’t know what to expect.

I’m on the library waiting list for Our Endless Numbered Days because the Socratic Salon will be discussing it this month. I’m not sure if I’ll be ready for it by then. Oh well.

Like I needed another reason to dislike Henry James beyond his crazy run-on sentences. Have a listen to Stuff Mom Never Told You’s podcast A White Marmorean Flock, all about lady sculptors in the 19th century.

Jonathan Franzen continues to make new friends. This time he’s pissed off the Audubon Society enough the they’ve written this long complaint. I guess his crankiness went too far this time.

I better get some stuff done now. Happy Whatever Day You’d Like to Celebrate Today!



  1. I loved Station Eleven. Hope you do too!
    Happy Easter!

  2. I loved Station Eleven. Hope you do too!
    Happy Easter!

  3. I'm planning to read Our Endless Numbered Days as well, but don't think I'll be able to get to it by April 15 Socratic Salon post either :(

  4. I LOVED The Illusion of Separateness. It was so gorgeous.

    Have a great week!

  5. I never heard that about James, although I did know he was involved in the art community and an amateur painter. Have you ever read What Alice Knew?

  6. Enjoy Station Eleven!

    The Jonathan Franzen / Audubon Society kerfuffle made me laugh so much. I know it's not funny, and they're talking about Serious Issues etc., but oh Lord, whenever Franzen says something, he sounds more and more like a crazy person and I become less and less likely to ever read one of his books. I love it.

  7. Your pictures make me think of spring. Will we ever see spring?
