    National Library Week starts today! I know you’re all excited.

    As a bibliophile, I’ve always been a lover of libraries. And now, out of college, with access to the biggest library system in the country, complete with a 40-minute commute to work each day, the number of books I’ve read this year has risen significantly from years past. 775 more words

    Life after life

    Kate Atkinson is one of those authors who has accompanied me throughout my adult life. A friend lent me “Human Croquet” when it was new in paperback and apart from having to catch up on “Behind the Scenes at the Museum”, I have read and enjoyed them all. 215 more words

    On the Shelf: Kate Atkinson's Life After Life

    Kate Atkinson is as precious to me as my first author-love Charlotte Brontë. Atkinson’s novels, like Brontë‘s, tremble with wit, comfort, and significance. She writes the words at the tip of your tongue with clarity and logic, achieving that incalculable balance of beauty and blood in the process.You become dizzy with the loveliness of her shapely scenes but aren’t allowed to be oblivious to the strong undercurrents of disaster. 304 more words
