Happy New Year!
I am home after the Christmas holidays. Determined to travel yesterday, I had to change my travelling plans, but all ended up well.
You know how you notice something and then other examples of it keep cropping up, like buying clothes in a striking colour and then seeing people wear it all the time, well, these holidays, with me, it was books that don’t just have chapter titles, but each page has a relevant heading. I’ve probably got other books that do that, but I hadn’t really noticed them.
In Margery Merton’s Girlhood
by Alice Cockran, they include ‘SECRETS AND TENDER THOUGHTS.’ (p25), ‘CRYING AND LAUGHING.’ (p112), and ‘A COLD FAREWELL.’ (p.213). In Miriam’s Ambition
by Evelyn Everett-Green, they include ‘A TERRIBLE STORM.' (p26), ‘AT DINNER.’ (p113), and ‘A REWARD FOR BRAVERY.’ (p214)( Read more... )
