Laura’s Blog Entry
Same sock, new book.
Sock details here. Get used to seeing it. I’ll be working on these for awhile!
Listening to Elizabeth Gilbert’s The Signature of All Things: A Novel. It’s well written and has a good flow. Very impressed with her research for this historical fiction. She has lots of botanical information, but not too much. It makes the story interesting. I am halfway through and really wondering what is going to happen to the main character! Warning: This is a LONG book. Luckily it works well in audio format. Another Warning: Don’t listen in the car with the kiddos! Portions are adult in nature.
After I finish I am totally going to look up some interviews with Elizabeth to hear the story behind this novel. Wondering how she even thought of these character and picked this time period!
Hope you have some juicy summer reads going on!
