I find myself crying at regular intervals while reading this. By the end, I was sobbing like a baby. Yes, I'm sentimental and often have fits of melancholy. But the extent and intensity of the crying took me by surprise. If you haven't read this book by Ann Brashares, you might want to try it. But be sure to have some tissue nearby, just in case.

Prejudice, cupcakes and books

1. I watched a play yesterday that made me think and re-think the issue and nature of prejudice and racism. I appreciated the thought and hard work that went into the writing and execution of the play.
2. A tupperware of carrot cake cupcakes waits for me in the fridge. Thank you to S for being such a generous friend.
3. I picked up the library books I reserved and looking forward to spending the day reading.
