One of the many interesting things about the English language is – it’s confusing as hell. Take the first word of this blog title – Read. Pronounced ‘reed’ and it is present tense, pronounced ‘red’ and it is past tense. So fun! For the purposes of this post you can interpret it (or ‘reed’ it) both ways.
Remember the other day when I was nattering on about Olive, Again, I said i was going to reread The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. Well I did, and it was just as wonderful as the first time I read (red) it. And because I am craving the familiar and what has brought me pleasure in the past, today I will start to reread Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin. I don’t know that this book is all that warm and fuzzy but I remember liking it and I like the way Ms. Zevin writes. Perhaps I should be moving on to her other books which I haven’t read (red) but for now this is my mood – reed what has been previously red.
I shall leave you with two quotes from “The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry” because why not start the day all warm and fuzzy –
