A Word for Wednesday


to fill with love, fascinate

As in: I have been enamored of the book Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez for years. It is by far my favorite book ever, and I look forward to reading it for probably the 50th time this weekend while I'm at the beach. There's just something about the lifelong devotion of Florentino Ariza that makes me swoon. And the banalities of their love in the end of the novel are so real, yet amazing and endearing. Love it.

What is your favorite book or beach-read?

Daily Drop Cap by Jessica Hische.


  1. Tough to pick an all-time favorite, but I recently read The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan, and it was phenomenal. Also loved The Road by Cormac McArthy, which is a love-it-or-hate-it kind of book, but I read it in a day. Love.

    I wish I could go back to Dr. Ragan's class and re-read some of those Classics!

  2. I have been meaning to read this book for forever. Hopefully this summer!

  3. Keenan- Can't wait to try those books, Keenan--I tried to read The Road years ago, but should try again. And def. miss Dr. Ragan's class and the books we read!

    Ali- I truly do adore Love in the Time..., but it's not for everyone. Try it; it's not one of those books that I loved form the very took a little commitment to get through it the first time I read it, but by the end, I was in love. (And keep going back for more!)
