Academic recess = literary day trips in New England!

I have not been posting regularly. The Fall 2009 semester will be over tomorrow and I will have a month to read and blog to my heart's content! I am going to spend my academic break in Connecticut, for twenty five days. While there, I will re-visit the homes of Sam Clemens (aka: Mark Twain) and Harriet Beecher Stowe. If weather permits, I may venture back to the Mount (Edith Wharton's estate) in Lenox, MA.

A few weeks ago, I posted an entry about my favorite independent bookstore, R.J. Julia Booksellers. However, when I wrote that entry, I didn't have pictures of the interior of the bookstore and café. The place is beautiful, so I will make sure to take pictures and post them, for you to see.

Since Connecticut is where my family lives, some blog posts will be personal. This blog is primarily about literature... but once in a while... change is good. I look forward to sharing my New England state with you.

Here are some photos that I took in Connecticut in Winter 2008 and Summer 2009:

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -

I took the one less travelled by,

And that has made all the difference.
