A quote by Anna Quindlen

ABC Wednesday
November 1st, 2017

The Letter is Q for Quote and Quindlen

I have just finished reading Miller's Valley

by Anna Quindlen

I have a feeling that I have used Quindlen before

in my search for ABC Wednesday's quirkiest letter

but Miller's Valley did not exist then,

although many of Anna Quindlen's other books

had delighted me.

An American author, journalist and opinion columnist

I first discovered her when I read

"A Short Guide to a Happy Life"

and she says of her writing that it is always about families,

they being the metaphor of all of living.

And it is so with Miller's Valley.

Read it if you can, - you will love it!!

As to one of her quotes...

"Think of Life as a terminal illness,
because if you do you will live
it with joy and passion, 
as it ought to be lived".

More interesting Qs here at ABC Wednesday...

What an impressive quote... and so right also, we should be more aware I guess of the preciousness of life in general

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-WEDNES-day / – week

I came, I read, I left, I went to the Library (electronically) and checked out the Kindle version of this book!! And now I am back to say thank you. Have read a lot of Anna Q, but somehow missed this one. I'll think of you when I read it as we travel. (It is still amazing to me that I will be able to read books from the Eugene public library when we are all the way over on the other coast, thanks to Kindle.)
