After a busy day yesterday and a restless night, this morning was a good time to be lazy. So I curled back up in bed with the last few chapters of "Between, Georgia" from Joshlin Jackson. Jackson's characters are authentic Southern. Actually I think they could probably be found in a lot of places. Her heroine, Nonny, has two families - the mother who raised her is deaf, blind and completely endearing. Both families are bent on feuding in ways from committing slights to felonies. She's caught between families, lovers, and homes.
This is the second of her books I've read. The other is "gods in Alabama." I consider these somewhere between chick lit and serious literature. In other words, they make you think but don't make you think "what was that I just read again?"
I made the bookmark last week when I was experimenting with Christmas cards for my stamp-a-stack this Saturday. This design was much too sunny for a winter card and I needed a new bookmark anyway.
