  1. Just seeing Mama Bear and cubs again makes my day–thanks! Good list. The Night Circus may be produced as a movie by the Harry Potter producer. I better get reading.


    1. I know some have likened Night Circus to Harry Potter, but I found the metaphor of time and clocks more intricate and nuanced. That’s just me.

      Saw first two episodes of Downton Abbey (repeat of first season) last night and that’s now our favorite. Wow. Gorgeous.
