Tesseracts for everyone

A favorite childhood companion of mine died yesterday. I read so, so many of her books. I put "A Wrinkle in Time" in a time capsule I made as a teenager. I love that book. Go read it to your kids if you haven't already.



Madeleine L'Engle

I had no idea she had passed away. Sad to hear it. She wrote excellent fiction.

It's on Grayson's dresser to read next.

One of my favorite books too.

I just checked "A Wrinkle In Time" out from the library, (somehow missed it as a child.) I'll observe a moment of admiration/gratitude for Ms. L'Engle's creative life when I start reading.

Oh, and if you get lonely for a gecko when you move, just let me know...I'll catch one under the plunger and mail it to you.

We've got three of her books on our bookshelf and I was just looking at them the other day, thinking about reading then. Now I definitely will. Thanks for letting us know.

Also one of my favorites.

I was relieved to read that she is survived by grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

My favorite book in the world is A Ring of Endless Light.

One of my all time favorite "tween" novels is "A Ring of Endless Light" from the "Meet the Austins" series! I'll be sure to put "Wrinkle" on my list!
