Quite a bit of knitting this week, but nothing quite ready to share just yet..
I finished reading Water for Elephants, and I am so sad it’s over.
The book has been sitting on my nightstand for almost a week now. I’ve been to the library twice, but I can’t bring myself to return it. I don’t even want to read anything else because it won’t quite measure up.
The story weaves between young Jacob, who, in desperation, jumps a train and enters the world of the travelling circus in the mid 1900s – and present day Jacob, in his nineties, in a nursing home.
A beautiful, beautiful story; and a lot of the outrageous circus anecdotes haven been taken from circus history.
Loved it (can you tell?!)
