If you think Amanda Knox was guilty, I highly recommend reading The Monster of Florence. I was on the fence before reading it, but by the time I finished it I was convinced she was not guilty. I thought the book was going to be the story of a notorious serial killer but instead it’s a frightening true story about the Italian justice system. I loved my time in Italy but this book made me seriously reconsider my opinion that it was a country where I could live.
The pastors at my church read a lot of different books and use stories from them to illustrate points during sermons and lessons. Recently they read This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection by Carol Burnett. They each told some really great stories from it and I thought it sounded like a good read. I’ve really been enjoying it and especially loved her story about meeting Cary Grant (one of my all-time favorite actors). She was very nervous about meeting him and in fact didn’t really want to meet him because she knew she would embarrass herself. He was a big fan of her show and gave her big compliments. All she could manage to say in return was, “You’re a credit to your profession.”
Did you know when you highlight a passage from a Kindle book that you can access it at www.kindle.amazon.com? All you do is log in, select the book and then it will show you everything you’ve highlighted in that book. I love this! I have been using the Kindle App on my iPhone more now that the library has started offering content for Kindle. My favorite feature is that it will sync between my iPhone and iPad so I never lose my place when going between devices. The library’s App doesn’t do that. My least favorite feature is that the Kindle App doesn’t tell you how many pages are left in the chapter. It doesn’t bother me on this book but it will with others that have really long chapters. I often use that information to decide whether I want to read another chapter before I go to sleep.
My “Adele” Pandora station keeps playing Gravity by Sara Bareilles. Every time it plays, I giggle a little to myself because I always think about this scene from Community.
I plan on correcting some photos that I scanned awhile back from my childhood. It’s been really fun going through all these pictures. I don’t really remember Daddy taking this photo but I do remember that I always wanted to climb the ladder when it was out. And I was always very insistent about having my picture taken. What are your plans for the weekend?
