#Friday56 & #BookBeginnings: Revolutionary Road

The final dying sounds of their dress rehearsal left the Laurel Players with nothing to do but stand there, silent and helpless, blinking out over the footlights of an empty auditorium.
- p. 7

For Friday 56:
Then from the safety of her new position, she displayed her long teeth in an elaborate smile.
- p. 56


About Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates*:  From the moment of its publication in 1961, Revolutionary Road was hailed as a masterpiece of realistic fiction and as the most evocative portrayal of the opulent desolation of the American suburbs. It's the story of Frank and April Wheeler, a bright, beautiful, and talented couple who have lived on the assumption that greatness is only just around the corner. With heartbreaking compassion and remorseless clarity, Richard Yates shows how Frank and April mortgage their spiritual birthright, betraying not only each other, but their best selves.

I watched the movie many, many years ago and it made quite an impression on me. This is one of those less "noisy" films but it speaks loads. I decided then that I would make a point to get a hold a book and now I have this thrifted copy. I am zooming through the beginning and all I can remember is that sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach as I start seeing two amazing characters "out for each other."

Are there movies that made an impression on you that you had to read?

#BookmarkMonday: Intolerably stupid


It's been a very long time since I featured bookmarks that I don't actually own. I found this bookmark of a quote by Jane Austen too awesome not to share with you all. This bookmark was made by Bookworm Mama Co.* on Etsy.

No mincing of words. Gotta love Jane Austen.

Now I have a weird hankering to watch Sense and Sensibility.

#Friday56 & #BookBeginnings: Poirot investigates

 I had been called away from town for a few days, and on my return found Poirot in the act of strapping up his small valise.
- p. 7

For Friday 56:
"But yes, Hastings. I believe in these things. You must not underrate the force of superstition.- p. 56


About Poirot Investigates by Agatha Christie*:  The very first collection of superb short stories featuring Hercule Poirot and Captain Hastings...First there was the mystery of the film star and the diamond! then came the 'suicide' that was murder! the mystery of the absurdly chaep flat! a suspicious death in a locked gun-room! a million dollar bond robbery! the curse of a pharoah's tomb! a jewel robbery by the sea! the abduction of a Prime Minister! the disappearance of a banker! a phone call from a dying man! and, finally, the mystery of the missing willl. What links these fascinating cases? Only the brilliant deductive powers of Hercule Poirot!

If you follow me on Instagram,  you know this photo is old. I totally spaced and forgot to put it on the blog, so here it is:

I've been a huge Agatha Christie fan since high school and anything she writes, I will read. When I went to the thrift store, a whole bunch of vintage Christies were there and I had a hard time not snapping them all all (there were over a dozen!). I decided to take home this copy though, and feel a little antsy abut actually reading it because the pages are starting to fall out.

Meanwhile, I know the blog is silent. I'm still reading Neil Gaiman's The View from the Cheap Seats.I'm taking a break of sorts. When I'm back, I'm back.

Is there a specific author you can't resist when in a bookstore? 

Book Depository*
(I couldn't find the exact cover anywhere. I don't even know what year my edition is!)

#BookmarkMonday: Picasso + side trip to two art galleries



We recently went to the Winnipeg Art Gallery's Picasso: Man and Beast Exhibit and got a fill of Picasso's wonderful work, particularly his etchings. (I have to say that I was disappointed there were only three paintings.) Naturally a souvenir was called for and this colouring book* was the perfect one - I grabbed a notepad paper there and it's now a bookmark!

Curious about the WAG exhibit? Here's a snap of Femme Assise (or Seated Woman), a 1927 piece. I have a few more photos on my Instagram.


I was pumped to have actually seen the piece The Young Ladies of Avignon at The Museum of Modern Art in our trip to New York. It's a shockingly huge piece!


I have to say that I can't go home without a souvenir from an art gallery - even if it's just a (very overpriced) magnet or bookmark. I may as well as hand over my wallet.
