The Spool

Thankful for my spine. #7
I'm in the Toronto airport.  On the plane here, from PEI, I finished Anne Tyler's latest novel, A Spool of Blue Thread.

I love Anne Tyler so much.  I love all her books.

  If I met Anne Tyler I would FREAK OUT.  I would probably start silently weeping as I stared into her eyes. I hope I wouldn't, but I'm not going to lie.  It could very well happen.

 I was going to suggest Anne's book for my book club chat, but I decided I couldn't handle it if anyone in the group didn't care for this beautiful book.   When people tell me they don't care for Anne Tyler's work, I change the subject PDQ.  To each her own and all that, but leave me out of it.  Anne Tyler has hold of my heart strings.  If you feel like reading this book, you should, but if you don't, let's keep it on the down low.  Sometimes Husbandman says he doesn't care for some of Anne Tyler's work, but I just remind him that he loves Anne Tyler and we leave it at that.

I've heard good things about this book, and now I must read it.

I've never read any Anne Tyler and will remedy that this summer, I do believe.
