A New Book

“Each day, and the living of it, has to be a conscious creation in which discipline and order are relieved with some play and pure foolishness.” ~ May Sarton

I seem to be very into quotes lately. What can I say but I’ve just found some that have been resonating with me a lot. The other reason I chose this quote is because I started reading The Small Room by May Sarton which The Slaves of Golconda are discussing this Sunday.

While I think I will like this book can I just tell you it is hard to read. No, nothing wrong with the story but the book itself! I borrowed a copy from the library and it looks like it has been around since 1961 when it was published. Lots of discoloration, the pages seem brittle and just not a very nice copy overall. I should have bought this one instead. Ah well, I’ll put some gloves on and read on. Ha.

Anyway, I wanted to talk about some other stuff but I need to get back to the book and try to finish in time for the discussion. I’ve read May Sarton’s Journal of a Solitude which I thought was wonderful so I do look forward to reading this. And, please feel free to join in on our discussion.
