My blog has been horrendously neglected. That will henceforth be amended. (Fingers crossed!)
In the original spirit of this blog, I’m going to write about what I’m currently reading, or things I want to be reading, from books, blogs and articles to cookbooks, (I’m keeping them all, Dave!), maps and lists.
I recently moved to San Diego, California, (Encinitas to be exact.), and I joined the lovely Encinitas Public Library. I picked up Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, partly because I have always wanted to read it and partly because I’ve been feeling mildly nostalgic for the slow, drawling pace of the South, post move. The book did not disappoint and thoroughly lived up to its reputation. Saturated with kooky characters, spirits, (both ghosts and the alcoholic variety), Savannah history and mystery, this book made for a quick read. I finished feeling like I’d learned something new. Lots of things new, actually. And my heart made a little pitter patter for the unique city that Savannah is.
In other news, I have heard the movie version definitely does not live up to the book. Thoughts?
