Have you read "Rules of Civility" by Amor Towles? I loved it--great story and does a great job of evoking 1930's New York. I also really liked "The Perks of Being a Wallflower." It took me back to high school and made me remember how intensely teenagers feel everything!


These aren't book recommendations but they are ballet-related. Have you watched Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance or First Position? Both fascinating documentaries.


Elissa -- I LOVED "Rules of Civility" SO MUCH. I read it last year and was thinking the other day that I should read it again.

Ris -- I have seen "First Position" and thought it was terrific. I will have to get the Joffrey one!

Let me know what you think of the "Perks..." movie(filmed in Pittsburgh! Holla!). I just saw it on Friday night, and despite having a mid-film breakdown about how I never want Sadie to become a teenager, I really enjoyed it...with the exception of Emma Watson. Girlfriend just ain't that good, especially when surrounded by the rest of the cast who were acting circles around her. But I haven't read the maybe she was actually perfect?


Off topic but book-related: I've been reading the little house books to my 5 year-old, and I've been playing Pa's songs on YouTube as we go. So much fun! I'd always skimmed the songs and thought they were boring. As a long-time lurker, I know how much you love the Little House books- I thought you'd appreciate hearing how soon you'll be able to share them with Felicity.
