"Time and the Art of Living" by Robert Grudin (some margin notes)

From the back cover:  " This is a book about time--about one's own journey through it and, more important, about enlarging the pleasure one takes in that journey.  It's about memory of the past, hope and fear for the future, and how they color, for better and for worse, one's experience of the present.  Ultimately, it's a book about freedom--freedom from despair of the clock, of the aging body, of seeming waste of one's daily routine, the freedom that comes with acceptance and appreciation for the human dimensions of time and of the place of each passing moment on life's bounteous continuum."

My small (30+) but varied bookshelf includes:

Snarky British humor

Historical fiction:  Roman empire, WWII

Hollywood:  Filmmaking, film reviews, the Oscars

Spirituality and self-help

Nonfiction

Mine is a smoke-free, pet-free home.

Happy 2008 to all!

Thanks!
