Want to see what my mom made me? It’s the best bookish present ever

This week was the slowest I’ve had in a long while. I’m mourning, along with the rest of the world, for the victims of the shooting that took place in Newtown, Connecticut. I can’t wrap my mind around what happened. Senseless and evil. I hope they find a way to heal. My heart hurts for everyone involved.

  1. I'm a bit disconnected from the news and I've only been hearing the mass murder from the internet and twitter. I can't handle too much of that kind of thing and there has been a lot of it. Thank you for your lovely comments . Your blog was the only one I couldn't access from the mr. linky thing…hmmm. Anyway your mothers gift is awesome and I hope you have a great reading week!

  2. All the Lonely People sounds like a really interesting read, especially around the holidays when we spend so much time with our families. I am very close to my family, but I think family has less to do with being related and more to do with who we truly let into our lives.

  3. I had a difficult time with the shooting in Connecticut as well, it really upset me and I still can't wrap my head around it. I'm sorry to say that it really colored my whole weekend :(All the Lonely People sounds interesting, I'm going to have to look into that one a little more!

  4. I'm definitely struggling too. Between preparing for the holidays and my thoughts continuing to cycle back to Sandy Hook, reading has become relatively unimportant. SO tragic.
