January 8, 2016, Friday afternoon -- Reading Eckhart Tolle

At Bondi Beach, in Sydney, Australia 

She is reading A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle, in Hebrew. She is visiting Australia from Israel.

Her favorite book is The Master and Margarita, by the Russian author, Mikhail Bulgakov. When she was 8 years old her family emigrated from Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) to Israel. Her mother gave  her the book when she was 13. It's deeper and more magical than any other book she's ever read. She said you would have to have a good imagination and sense of humor to write such a book, and no fear at that time to write such a book at that time and place.

Recently she's read the Millennium series, by Stieg Larson; Twilight, by Stephanie Meyer and the first two-and-a-half books of the Fifty Shades of Grey series, by E.L. James, which she stopped reading because she found it annoying. She also thought the main character was so similar to the main character in Twilight.

That's so true! Looking back through my blog it looks like it happens all the time. What came first, the outfit or the book? I hope the book.
