Bookie

I think today’s “theme” is books.  (That’s because St. Patrick’s Day is not celebrated here, although in honor of the occasion I ordered green tea at the salon de thé.)  I met a friend who introduced me to the public library and I now have a library card.  In addition to English books and magazines, there are thousands of cd’s and dvd’s which may work in my computer drive.  I am hopeful!  On my walk into centre I purchased two book club selections from the English bookstore, Americanah, and Paris. And later I will continue to read The Book Thief, which couldn’t possibly be overstaged by the movie.  I also screened Monuments Men, a moving movie which enthuses me to read the story.  I have become a film snob and despite the known celebrities on the billing, I thought the acting was weak.  But the story.  The story is compelling and nearly brought me to tears.  That means the book will be even better.  But first, I must keep an appointment with my book Expat Taxes Made Easy which is an entirely fictional title and not on my recommended reading list!
