Hi Peggy. The book I was thinking of this afternoon was "The Matchmaker of Perigord". Have you read it? I thought it was a wonderful book.
I'll have to look to see if I still have it, but I don't think I do. Have you read The Art Forger? That is a good book. It's a novel based around
the art heist at the Isabella Gardner Museum in Boston. It's fiction, but the robbery did take place and they still have not recovered the paintings.
The frames remain empty in the museum where the paintings were. Good to see you this afternoon.
Thanks. I'd love to borrow it. I'm planning on being there Sunday. Coming to Community Circle on Monday? No project required, even though that's what Peter said in his e-mail. Just took Jeffrey to the airport this evening, so it's an empty nest again.
I think I would. It's not as good as The Discovery of Witches, but nonetheless it is very good and gives you something to think about. It takes place in a time when the "old times" in this book are back when there were computers, electricity, automobiles, etc. I'll pass it along when I'm finished, if you like.
It reads pretty quickly.
Mrs. Eiss, you put me to shame.....I'll never catch up to you and all of the books you've read! I don't get on Shelfari enough. I wish every time you wrote a review it
would just come to me by e-mail ;-) I love looking at your reviews to see what I should read next.
I just finished A Grown Up Kind of Pretty and really liked it. I bought the book, so don't get it and I'll give it to you when you come. Also, you really should read The Lost Hours by Karen White. It's on the kindle. It really makes you think and wish you'd have paid more attention to the stories you Moms, Grandmas told you.
