Incoming Mail

 Yuma, Arizona, postcard from Becky in Oregon.  Look at the gorgeous sunrise (or sunset) in the center photo.  Lovely!

 Carnival scene postcard from Claudia in California of Moncy3.  I actually used the photo from her blog.  How can a carnival not brighten your day?

 Malaprops Bookstore/Cafe in Asheville, North Carolina, from Dana in North Carolina of Save Snail Mail.  Certainly looks like a store I want to visit.

The Main Pyramid at Tula, Hidalgo, Mexico, from Elizabeth in Mexico of Letters to Meredith.  Since she sent this blank with a letter I have the bonus fun of sending the postcard to Joel in Arizona, who is the only person I know more appreciative of mail than I am.

I like picture postcards, too, GotThatSwing. Kind of like armchair travel.

No worries, Claudia! I have the same problem of not always remembering what went where when I do mail together. :)

Here's the short set of questions I e-mailed to book club members yesterday, along with my own responses.

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
