Poor thing

One of my best friends is laid up with mono and can barely walk or eat! I feel really sorry for her, especially since it may cost her a new job (and we know how tough it is to find those these days!).

I stopped by her house today to drop off a couple of books for her, including one of my favorites, The Highest Tide. It’s a sweet, fun read, but packed with fascinating information about nature and science and the little-known ocean. It’s a really entertaining book, and I hope it gives her a little lift since she’s stuck at home.

Any other recommendations?

  1. I am re-reading the Thursday Next novels by Jasper Fforde, great for anyone who likes a little fantasy and enjoys classic literature- The Eyre Affair is the first book, that delves into (and has fun with) the “re” writing of Jane Eyre
    So unique and engrossing, she’ll forget she’s sick!

  2. Hmmm, one of my favorites is “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand. Anything by James Patterson is an interesting and easy read…keeps the mind off your problems. John Grisham is also very entertaining.

    Ahhhh, so many good books, so little time!!!

    My heartfelt wishes for your friend’s speedy recovery with new job intact!!

  3. ‘Eat, Pray, Love’
    She’s a wonderful writer. An easy read that’s funny and very uplifting.

  4. it just tripped for me. I knew that the title of the blog “Poor thing” sounded familiar… it’s a song from Sweeney Todd- “There was a barber and his wife…” ! Love that music. Beautiful, in a very creepy way.

  5. If she likes the Tide book she could read Why Some Like it Hot which is about how regional foodways are adaptive. Lots of obscure but useful biology and anthropology in it.

  6. I do believe everything happens for a reason but sometimes those reasons are hard to figure out. I hope your friend recovers quickly and perhaps her job won’t be lost or she finds one even better. Sending well wishes her way♥
