Me, after I’ve finished a book I totally love.
Although I don’t write gothic romance, I’ve certainly read it, and I adore this evocative image. Are these steps ones you’d want to go up . . . or hastily down, and away?
I love looking at book covers; it’s total eye candy for me. Here are some of my recent faves from Avon. Aren’t they gorgeous?!?
I have to admit two things. One: I’m a total bookmark person. (Almost anything will work in a pinch: envelopes, receipts, a movie ticket, Post-it notes, a piece of string . . .) Two: I have gotten huffy when people have dog-eared books I’m fond of.
I’m so wowed by this. It feels like my entire childhood, coalesced into a single image.
Further holiday merriment: a bookish wreath! I wonder what book this clever crafter utilized . . . ?

I’m a day late, but yesterday was the birthday of Caroline Ingalls — Ma in the Little House series. A towering, indelible figure of my childhood reading: stern but loving, a little mysterious, hardworking, and almost supernaturally resourceful.
