Today, I Am A Rêveur (November)

So this week we’ve been enjoying Book Fair at school — truly one of my favorite times of the year, academic or otherwise!  And this year our school spirit squad decided that we should have a dress-up day to commemorate a favorite literary character.  That day was today — and how fortuitous that it fell on the 13th of the month!

We’re supposed to somehow enact some portion of the books we recommend to help increase enthusiasm for Book Fair. Not that our school needs it THAT much. People here love Book Fair! We’re so lucky. 🙂

Be sure also to check out my friend Laine’s blog, in which she also today posted “Je rêve” and a delightful picture.

If you’d like to post links in the comments section to your own pictures, fantastic, and if you’d like instead to email me your pictures and let me post them, I’m totally open to that.

Cheers!  🙂

I recently read Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus, and for days afterward, I had to distract myself with other things to keep from breathless reverie. I’m trying to remember the last time I was so affected by a book, and I think it was the first time I read
