Wouldn't It Be Nice?

Wouldn't it be nice if every day was Caturday?

I laughed so hard when I saw that pic!!!  LOL

Pumpkin had a fun sleepover, and in the theme of this summer, the fun shall never end!!!  She is here now with Vi, and Vi's little bro, we shall call him Tee.   Right now, they are 'helping' Pumpkin clean her room.  Yeah right.

I am drinking coffee. 

Hubby is on his way home from a Boy Scout trip to sift through the sand in a creek for sharks teeth fossils that are millions of years old.  It is in central jersey somewhere... very cool.

Dan, who now has 2 blogs but, wants you to use this one,  The Wisdom of a Distracted Mind II , listed his 10 Top Literature Reads.  Like real literature, classics, not your personal fave novels and what not.

So, without further ado, here are mine.

1.     Old Man and the Sea - Ernest Hemingway

2.     The Grapes of Wrath - John Steinbeck

3.     Moby Dick - Herman Melville

4.     The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald

5.     Walden: Or a Life in the Woods - Henry David Thoreau

6.     The Metamorphosis - Franz Kafka

7.     For Whom the Bell Tolls - Ernest Hemingway

8.     The Lord of the Rings Trilogy - Tolkein

9.     Dracula - Bram Stoker

10.     Forever Amber - Kathleen Winsor

Of course, this is just my personal top ten, and there are many classics of literature that should be read!

Okay... have a great Caturday!

be well,

Wow are those some great books!!!  LOL you are drinking coffee.  You sound like me.  We would get along so well if you came to my house.  I have tons and tons of books to read.  I live within fifteen minutes or less of the library.  We go a LOT!!  I have two coffee makers and made a little coffee center right in my kitchen.  Hubby thinks I'm so weird.  LOL.  Hugs,

Loved both of the LOL cats! Great picks Your 10 top. I would have to listen the entire works of Edgar Allen Poe for my top choice. (Hugs) Indigo

Loving manatee cat!  Oh it is so sad that the only book I read in it's entirety on your list is The Grapes of Wrath.  I was at my friend's house and was looking for something to borrow to read.  She has a great library.  I almost grabbed Tolkein but I'm really not in the mood for it right now.  I think the kids need to be older!  So they will leave me alone while I read it!

What??? No C.S. Lewis books on your list lol?  He and Tolkien are still my favorites along with Jane Austen.
loving you
