2 books finished in 2013

Why are you reading this book?
It was on our bookshelf. The title was familiar in that I-should-have-read-this-already way.

What is the first line?
First line: The stage is divided into two areas, one within the other. (Or should I include the first spoken line? “Good evening. The subject of my talk tonight is love, pain, and suffering.”)

Describe the book in haiku form:
content bachelor
opinionated woman
surprising outcome

What will you do with it now?
keep for reference
put it back on the bookshelf x
keep to read again & again & again
post to paperbackswap.com
throw it away

Anything else you’d like to say?
Oh. This made me WEEP! I guess I should have known it would, since it’s apparently about the time in C.S. Lewis’s life about which he wrote A Grief Observed – I might have to reread that one to pair these together in my memory. It was beautiful and (emotionally) difficult to read.

  1. You read this! I didn’t know. That very book you held in your hands was an essential part of my conversion. Remind me to tell you the story sometime. xoxo
