I was having trouble getting to sleep, so I finished up The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg. I thought it might be too sentimental, based on the title, but it was lovely. I also read a string of good Alice Hoffman books lately: The Rules of Magic, The Marriage of Opposites, The Museum of Extraordinary Things, Faithful, The Dovekeepers.

About halfway through The Marriage of Opposites by Alice Hoffman. Really enjoying it. It's about Camille Pissaro's mother (although he is also a character in the story). They're living in Charlotte Amalia, St. Thomas.

I just finished The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman. She is hit or miss for me, but I liked this one. I like the idea of being a witch.

Sometimes I get nostalgic about clothes. I miss a gray wool sweater from college and a purple velour dress, also from college.

I just finished Tom Perrotta's frankly rather icky book, Mrs. Fletcher. The subject matter was a little...but his voice is always readable and engaging.

Sometimes I wake up way too early for no reason.
