Book Buddy – 1LinerWeds

I’ve been reading a lot lately. September and October seemed to be a good time for publishing books, as I had a lot of books land on my to-be-read pile. So many, that it became my Yo-you-seriously-need-to-read-some-of-these pile. So, I thought I’d look up a quote about books or reading for today’s one liner. I turned to one of my favorite authors, Mark Twain.

“If books are not good company, where will I find it?”

Samuel Clemens – a.k.a. Mark Twain

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s fun weekly series One-Liner Wednesday. If you have a one-liner, or if you would like to join in on the fun, you can follow this link to participate and to see the one-liners from the other participants.

Speaking of books.

If you like magical realism with suspense, action and a bit of family sarcasm, you will enjoy these books:

  1. More images that show just how much there is to admire close by. I am partial to that shot of the playground, but I have to admire that leaf for showing us what a long-tailed rabbit would look like. Interestingly, my reading these days has been a re-visit to Mark Twain. The news gets me down, and Twain picks me up.

  2. Hahaha! Smokey takes “tree hugger” to new heights Dan! And that squirrel begging for a peanut seems to be saying, “Whaddya mean I can’t come in! I thought we were friends.”

    The huge orange tree by the house is gorgeous, as is the lone red leaf.

    The leaf shadow looks like a camel who managed to bend his neck down with his head up!

    Old Glory is always at the ready.

    • The tree hugging Smokey wanted me to toss him a peanut (he was in someone else’s yard. I told him where to go for handouts.

      The little one that wants to come in actually knocks on the door. I think she has the system figured out.

      There is a bit of a camel hump to that shadow – don’t tell Rivergirl.

      Speaking of humps, it’s up and over today, Ginger. Make it a good one.


  3. I have to agree with Twain. Beautiful images. And what a difference between our regions. My trees are denuded of leaves. There are still some areas with a bit more than others but less and less.

  4. What do you mean I can’t come in?! I have good manners! That is such a cute photo.
    Your trees are beautiful. Some of ours have turned but a lot of them go from green to gone. I don’t know what happens, but the leaves just drop.

  5. Oh my, Golden Hour at the playground is gorgeous!! I like books for company as well.
    Your Maple leaf is so pretty. Our Fire Maple is still mostly green, and with yesterday’s snow and the low temperatures of late I fear the leaves will just fall off now sans changing color at all.

  6. Dan, this post has given me a blast of autumn colors. Much-needed. Although I’m visiting family in WA, and the awesome colors are here in Leavenworth and on the drive through Stevens Pass to Camano Island. Next stop Seattle, then back to CA. Must say Puget Sound and the distant Mt. Baker have my heart. Love having the panoramic view from the beach house. Peaceful living at its best. Happy November in CT. Of course, I love CT as well. 📚🎶 Christine

  7. I have told myself I cannot buy any more books until I finish the two I’m reading now. Yours is on my, to buy, list. Beautiful photos! You are good at capturing the light through the leaves.

  8. pretty trees. I see a dinosaur in the shadow of the leaf. I just read a terrible book (not yours) of a trilogy. I decided not to read the second book (not yours). I will be reading Harlan Coben’s and Lawrence Block’s books back to back.
