This meme, initiated by The Purple Booker and first introduced to me on Brainfluff. asks that we choose at random two or so sentences from our current read to share with other bloggers and readers. Mine today comes from The Little French Bistro by Nina George.

Mirianne, leaving her abusive husband after many years of a loveless marriage, finds herself in a small costal town in France.  She is taken in by an incredible cast of characters in a restaurant and hired as a cook after an unsuccessful attempt to take her own life.

A Whole Room to Myself. But just for one night, just one (she plans to try again the next day). For one night she would see what it was like to be a woman who had a room all to herself.

She put on her chef’s uniform and hesitantly placed the white hat on her head.  She was only a little anxious about cooking at Ar Mor (the restaurant’s name). She and the kitchen were roughly the same age: they would get on well.”

This is the end of chapter 15.

This year marks my fiftieth year in AAUW (American Association of University Women). The Alvin chapter was begun in 1947, and as a new, green teacher to Alvin Independent School District, I joined in 1968. In the 80's we began a book group to share our love of reading, books,and fellowship with other women and girls who loved the same. We resurrected the group on-line in September of 2015. Eventually Powerful Women Readers folded as an on-line book club, but I kept the title and turned it into a blog. (See "Introduction,"first blog). This is my first experience at blogging or publishing anything and is becomes more fun with each blog posted. I have just completed 30 years of teaching as an adjunct at The University of Houston Clear Lake. This is after three years at Alvin Community College and an almost-twenty year career as a classroom teacher with Alvin Independent School District, adding up to a total of teaching 50 years in all. Reading and writing are "in my blood" just like teaching is. I hope you enjoy the blog.

      1. It’s grim, isn’t it? Especially when they keep suggesting you go online to read their handy tips about what you can do to improve the situation… Sorry to hear you’ve been smitten and I’m assuming you are now plugged in again! Long may it continue.
