I currently live in a backwater, a place not really by anything.
Add to this the cold and isolation of winter,
and one thought jumps to mind - road trip.
So, that's just what my husband and I did last week.
We took a little road trip to my favorite, funky old-time bookstore.
Picture really tall ceilings and rows of shelves jam packed with books
on every conceivable subject.
Oh, and add the scent of old books to this picture.
All in all, a bibliophile's heaven.
We had a wonderful time ~
great mocha lattes,
and great conversation.
A great day in my book!
Speaking of books, have you read Whitney Otto's novel,
Eight Girls Taking Pictures (link)?
In the author's note, Whitney states, "This book is a work of fiction inspired by
several real women photographers whose lives and work have influenced my own."
I enjoyed how history was woven into this book -
politics, international events, camera types and technology,
plus fashions and fads of the times.
Also, I feel every artistic woman can relate to the struggles of the female characters
as they juggle career and creative desires,
against family and social expectations.
Timely and timeless.
Wishing you a week filled with great times and great books!
