moveable book

Part of my book haul from yesterday’s library book sale. Yes, most of these will become giveaways. :) 

Of these, I’ve read The God of Small Things, The Stranger, The Color Purple, Beloved, and The Master and Margarita. I recommend all of them, but I loved The God of Small Things and Beloved best. Have you read any of these? 

But Paris was a very old city and we were young and nothing was simple there, not even poverty, nor sudden money, nor the moonlight, nor right and wrong nor the breathing of someone who lay beside you in the moonlight…
—  A Moveable Feast - Ernest Hemingway
By then I knew that everything good and bad left an emptiness when it stopped. But if it was bad, the emptiness filled up by itself. If it was good you could only fill it up by finding something better.
—  Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

In the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks, Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast has rocketed to number one best-seller status in France. Its title in French translates roughly to “Paris is a celebration,” and it has quickly become a symbol of cultural defiance and resoluteness.

We would be together and have our books and at night be warm in bed together with the windows open and the stars bright.
