JUST KIDDING! It’s really MY MOM who blogs! Perhaps you’ve seen the “Let’s Talk About Books” button on the side of my blog? If you’re in reader you’re really missing out! (Ha but I did add some new pages to the blog so hop on out for a sec!)
Well, that “Let’s Talk About Books” button takes you to none other than MY MOTHER’S BLOG! Why does my mom have a blog? Because my mom wrote a book! It’s called Back to the Best Books: How the Classics Can Change Your Life. If you’ve been looking to step up your literature game a bit, her book is a guide to understanding what makes some of the classics great, with information about the authors and important themes found in each book. She explores 36 great works. She’s a really funny writer, so it’s a very interesting and accessible read, even though she is really smart. My book club was using it as a guide for some books (until we unofficially disbanded). My dad’s company made a pretty awesome video about the book! You can watch it here.
Anyway, she wrote the book a while ago but hasn’t been as diligent at blogging as her daughter! However, she assures me she has turned over a new leaf! This week she is at a summer camp in Oxford and she REALLY wants to invite you on her adventure. I joked with her it’s kind of like an adult space camp for book nerds. She agrees wholeheartedly, and sends me giddy text messages about her book friends she is making.
Ha! But she’s not just a literary genius, she’s a grandma to this girl:
Four generations of lit nerds! Well, Gigi is still up in the air, but she does LOVE when I read to her. My grandma is so cute and funny. When we took this picture she said, “I don’t want to hold her if she’s crying!” You can see it on her face!
Isn’t my mom pretty?
What’s so trippy is that while I was scrolling through my iPhoto thumbnails for pictures, I kept thinking I saw some, but they were actually pictures OF ME! I’m turning into my mother! Which in my case, as you can see, isn’t a bad thing, but it’s still so crazy. Are you turning into your mother? Do you think there’s anything we can do about it? I think it might be inevitable.
Have a happy Monday!
p.s. My mom was also one of the first moms on Facebook! Does your mom blog? Leave me the link! I’d LOVE to see it!
