For instance: if you're wondering why Tom Buckley, the love interest of my shy, endearing little heroine, Grace Kelly, has a big gap between his two front teeth, I could show you a picture of my husband, and there would be your answer. (Not that Tom is modeled exactly after my own high school boyfriend, mind you; but there are definitely similarities. In fact, of any character in the book, Tom is the most like someone I know in real life.)
|The man of MY dreams, when he was not|
much older than Tom is in the book.
|And here he is today, still rocking that tooth gap,|
still making my heart go pitter-pat.
In the combox yesterday, Barb mentioned that the Mother Goose image I posted was very Wicked Witch-like, and she was right--so I decided to make amends for that in today's post.
There, that's better. Let's just keep scary old MG out of the picture today.
I certainly wouldn't want to compete with the wonderful Wednesday book clubs at Housewifespice and Life of a Catholic Librarian. Or with Theme Thursdays at Clan Donaldson or 7 Quick Takes Fridays at Conversion Diary. (Ha ha! Not that this little blog could possibly compete with those blog staples anyway!) So I've decided that my book club full of Grace will be held every Tuesday, in keeping with the oft-quoted childhood verse.
When I asked for feedback about titles for the book club, it was agreed that "Tuesday's Child is Full of Grace" is a little too long. So I mentioned "Tuesday's Child" as one option and that got a positive response. Now my question is this: which of these choices do you think would work best: "Tuesday's Child," "Full of Grace," or "Grace-filled Tuesdays"?
I plan to come up with some sort of snazzy meme to go with each book club post; but until I get a chance to create that, I thought I'd share some vintage images by one of my favorite artists, Jesse Wilcox Smith, showing some eager little readers. You know, to get y'all in the mood for some book readin'. (And also just because they are so unbelievably adorable.)
