a book review and wednesday fun:)



a book review by lindsay....



Hey I just finished Junes book. 
I finally got my notice from the library that the Book Thief is in, so I'm reading that next (oops a little backwards).

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society was a wonderful read. 
I loved how, just by letters, you came to know and love all the characters.  It was very unique. I thought the book was insightful, heartbreaking, entertaining and witty. There is a quote in the book that says 
"I wonder how the book got to Guernsey? Perhaps there is some secret homing instinct in books that bring them to there perfect readers". 
The authors were
 able to show the truth to this quote with each of the characters.
I loved how books helped uplift the Guernsey Literary Society during very hard times.  
And how you could tell each characters personality by the books they chose, although they didn't have many to choose from.
I really enjoyed this book. 
It left me wanting more! I give it 5 stars.

From Lindsay 


i agree with lindsay...
i think this book made me remember it was like when 
we really did write letters.
funny how a real story can be told just from correspondence. 
no shorthand:)
i think reading and writing letters was actual entertainment
for them and they waited for days or weeks for
a reply...
can you imagine the patience it took?
i too loved this book and i give it 5 stars...
i understand they are making a
movie out of it with kate winslet as juliet...
i am looking forward to seeing it...
~~~~~
we have been having so much fun with our wednesday word challenge...
it has actually been unbelievable...
here is a look at what went on...

thanks everyone. 
i was amazed at how many people played along...

Great job collaging the pictures. It was fun to see what everyone came up with. I liked Kevin's pizza picture for the laugh factor.
