I just got this wonderful book in the mail. Had been eagerly waiting for it since I’ve heard great things about it. I cannot wait to read it.
Say hello to hygge This wonderful article talks about how this book has become a best seller and how not only the Danish but the Scandinavian way of life is a great way to live.
I love this book. I love Francie Nolan because she’s not your typical blond blue eye beauty. She is REAL, growing up in an impoverished family in early 1900’s Williamsburg Brooklyn, she learns at a very young age the hardships of life. Nonetheless, that is no reason for her to not find happiness in the unlikeliest places. Deep down she always knew Neeley her younger brother, was Katie’s favorite. But unlike her mother, dad Johnny Nolan always had time for her and would stay up at night sometimes talking to her. I cried so much when her dad died, never again would she hear him coming up the Steps singing “Molly Malone”. Francie is an inspirational character and that tree had a particular meaning for her, one which I won’t give away here. It’s a wonderful book and it comes HIGHLY recommended. Also Brooklyn is my Home!!! 🙂
I die a little inside everytime I hear someone say that reading is Only for Nerds or is the most boring thing on earth. Last person who told me this I said “You must be the most boring and unimaginative person alive!”. Seriously, WTF is wrong with people! How can Anyone NOT love something as liberating and wonderful as reading a book. And we ask ourselves why the world is the way it is?! I swear I think Technology has rendered people more Stupid with the Passage of time instead of the opposite. #allreadersunite
I cannot wait to read this corky book. 🙂 I usually don’t like to read books that everyone else reads but I’ve heard so many great things about it and the quotes are so great makes me want to read it all the more. Plus the fact that is set in the 1980’s. It’s now on my kindle awaiting its turn to be read. 🙂
