Friday Round-up

...the British writer Nick Hornby wrote: “...With each passing year, and with each whimsical purchase, our libraries become more and more able to articulate who we are, whether we read the books or not.”I love this quote from this article in Utne even though my stacks of books sometimes make me feel overwhelmed.
The always a pleasure Toymaker has a mermaid up...some little child may enjoy it, I will, of course, want it for myself with my love of mermaid things.
and finally, a recipe for a favorite Indian dish I plan on trying shortly - anyone cooks it up first, let me know how it came out!

I've been away from my computer for a couple of days and have just found your very recent comment on my post about the memorial stone to a much-loved dog. I'm so glad the post helped.

I see you love mermaids, in which case I'm sure you have read The Republic of Love by Carol Shields. If you have, you'll know why I mention it. if you haven't, I I'm sure you will enjoy it.

And next time I am in Zennor, in Cornwall (the adjoining county to mine), I'll take a photo of the mermaid carved into the end of a pew in the ancient church there and include it in a post on my blog.

I have not read that book - thanks for the recommendation. I did read her Stone Diaries book - I think that is the title - and thought she was a very good writer. I look forward to the mermaid photo on your blog :)
