The view out my door...


My son made a nice display while playing hooky on Inauguration Day (see photos). It's very very Tim, and totally different from the stuff I usually put out. I think he even did the work for free!!!

Almost time to get working on the newsletter... I am compiling a huge list of books that are great for young teenagers, mostly adult books that are a great crossover. Ani has read Peace Like a River, for instance, and loved it. Then, I am going to put a call out for the young teen crossover family movie list. This is the hardest age to find movies to watch as a family! I'm game for suggestions.

Oh Happy Day!

Happy Inauguration Day! I feel so positive.
The poem was incredible. It will be published in February in an $8 edition. I am hoping for a larger collection of Elizabeth Alexander's poetry including that beautiful poem.
I hope for a better future for all of our children in schools operating without enough resources to do their best. And I hope for a better future for everyone in which our health, our education, our elder years, our working years, are addressed with dignity and care.
I think that's not an unreasonable hope, though I think it will take quite some time at the beginning of this paradigm shift.

Happy New Year!

Happy new year from Lucy's Books! One of my resolutions, to deal with technology, gave me the impetus to join the universe and upload a bunch of pictures of the shop, inside and out, for the curious and far away.
We have really nice t-shirts for sale - the green are "girl" cut and the others unisex. $15 buys you lots of fashion here.

The Stephenie Meyer store... a fixture now.

Various lovingly tended piles of books...

And journals too...
Now to my next resolution - to read Midnight's Children, which has for some odd reason caused a block for me for years. Cheers, til next time.
