I tried...

I tried to make it last, really I did. But I finished it any way. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society was, sigh, great. Really great. I enjoyed each and every word. How often can you say that about a book? Made me want to move there and get to know everyone, even if they are fictional. I savored the afterglow of that book, and then began another. This one is entitled Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. I think it might have been just as good. A very different sort of literary book, but oh-so-good too. I finished it last night. So sad to see it finished. Why can't they just go on forever? (Don't answer, I know why.) If you are looking for a good book, I can heartily recommend either (or both). You will be blessed and enjoy yourself as well!


  1. Hi Melinda, thanks for the mention. So glad you enjoyed the book. (And Guernsey as well).

    I like the idea of Gratitude 101. My mom kept a "Gratitude Journal" for most of her life. It helped her remain an optimist even in trying times...

    Best to you and your family,


  2. Wow - a comment by the author! How cool is that??? Thanks, Jamie!
