Book love: Light Changes Everything

“I blame the beginning of the whole thing on Jane Austen.”

The first sentence of Light Changes Everything, a newish novel of historical fiction by Nancy E. Turner, totally hooked me, and the rest of the story reeled me in, all the way to the glorious conclusion. I’d love to share the closing lines, which are beautiful and soul-satisfying and perfect, but I won’t, because I think you should read this marvelous book. :)

I love the cover, too!

Cozy bookishness!

Or bookish coziness! Regardless, something pretty and peaceful to look at.

Tsundoku!

A new word for me. Tsundoku:

Buying books and not reading them; letting books pile up unread on shelves or floors or nightstands.

Can I relate? Big-time! You?

By the way, did you notice the title of the book she’s reading? ;)
