Open A Book And You Can Travel The World
Just yesterday I returned from a trip to Brooklyn, New York after reading and closing the pages on a popular coming of age book called A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.
A Tree Grows in Brookly was written by Betty Smith in 1943. The story is that of a young girl's coming of age in the early 20th century New York City and it was the latest read for my book club. Yes, I would recommend it and I see online that some people call it their favorite book.
Next we will open a book called All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. It was written much more recently and promises to take me on a very different journey, this time to World War II Europe where I will meet a German boy and a French girl trying to survive the war. I don't know much more about it than that though I do see that it was Amazon's book of the month in May 2014. I am looking forward to opening it and beginning my next trip.
What book have you opened lately? Would you recommend it?

This was my second Five-Minute Friday Post. Every Friday, blogger Heading Home issues a challenge to write for just five minutes about a word. This week's challenge was to write with the word open.
I know I have now spent a few minutes more than the allotted five minutes but I definitely spent less time than last week so I am improving! If you're interested in participating, you can subscribe to the blog by following the link to Heading Home shown above.
It seems appropriate that my copy of this book is a first edition copy. You can buy your first edition copy of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn on eBay by clicking here.
