Bout of Books Update - 1/8

Bout of Books

Today has been a bit hectic. My grandmother passed away yesterday, so I drove to my Mom's house today to pick her up. Tomorrow we are driving 7 hours to Indiana for the funeral. My grandmother was 92, so she lived a very long and prosperous life. The last few years had been difficult for her; she was ill quite a lot and had severe dementia. Her passing is really a blessing I think; she is at peace now.

I will be busy with family things for the next few days, so I do not know how much I will be online. I did schedule a few posts earlier in the week, so you will still get your Thoughtful Thursday and Friday Review post.

I did do a bit of reading today. I listened to 3 hours of Silver Linings Playbook (almost halfway). I have seen the movie twice and had enjoyed it, but I am loving the book. As to be expected, the movie is a bit condensed. I am really appreciating all the extra details that I am learning about Pat (Bradley Cooper's character) and his struggles with mental illness.

Number of books I've read today: 1
Total number of books I've read: 0

So sorry to hear about your grandmother. Safe travels to Indiana, and sending warm thoughts to you and your mom.

I read Silver Linings Playbook last year so I could watch the movie, I liked it a lot. The movie was cute too, I actually enjoyed the differences.

I'm so sorry about your grandmother but I'm so happy you are seeing as a blessing. Sometimes it's hard to watch the ones you love getting older. My prays to you and your family.

Thank you so much. Everything went very smoothly. Luckily the weather held out while we were there.

Thank you so much. Everything went smoothly.

I agree with you about SLP; the movie and book are very different but are both lovely in their own ways.
