Friday 56... The Light We Cannot See

Friday 56 is hosted by Freda's Voice.

"She watches New York city recede;   the forts of New Jersey salute her departure with cannons;  channel markers bob in the swells.  A lightship with twin beacons glides past as America recedes; ahead wait the great glittering prairies of the Atlantic."

This is a few lines from the book The Light We Cannot See,  I've finally gotten it from the library, it was a long wait, and these lines do not seem that exciting, but... I'm anxious to see what the wait was all about.

 Each week, Feeling Beachie lists four statements with a blank for you to fill in on your own blogs.  
The statements:

    1. Do I have ___
    2. If only ___ then ___
    3. Every girl needs a___ and every boy needs ___
    4. I would love to learn about ___ but do not want to have to ___

Here are mine:

1. Do I have to wake up.

2.  If only I was younger, then I'd learn to drive again, so I wouldn't have to take a bus everywhere.

3.  Every girls needs to learn to use basic tools, and every boy needs to learn to cook a great meal.

4.  I would love to learn about art restoration but do not want to have to go back to college.

I loved this book. I also had to wait for it from the library -- it was well worth the wait :)
I'm hoping to get my drivers license this year. I also wish that I could go back in time to when I was 16, and wish I could have just sucked it up and did the test then.

Oh Martha, I'm so proud of you Martha. I did suck it up and get my license but that's as far as it went. I haven't driven since. I think now I'd fight with my husband to drive, if I were younger. I'm so exhausted from walking and busing everywhere.

Wow, a National Book Award finalist. This sounds like something my Audrey would like. I think I'll find her a copy for her upcoming birthday. Thanks, dear Irene!!! xoxo
