thoughts from Juliet

by Joanna on March 5, 2013

I was flipping through some old journal notes and came upon this quote  I jotted down from The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. It still resonated with me when I reread it so I thought I’d share it with you.

“I don’t want to be married just to be married. I can’t think of anything lonelier than spending the rest of my life with someone I can’t talk to, or worse, someone I can’t be silent with.” ~Juliet, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, page 8

Two questions:

1) Thoughts on the passage?

2) Have you read this book? I read it around Christmas time and really enjoyed it. It’s told through a series of letters and it’s interesting to see how the plot and characters develop through notes to and from different characters.

Love it! I couldn’t agree more. Sometimes in silence we connect more than in talking! Have not read that book, but I know people love it! May have to pick it up now!

One of my favorite silent activities is reading in bed or going to a coffee shop on a Saturday morning, Mike reading the paper, me reading/writing.

I enjoyed The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I thought it was pretty creative. I finished Gone Girl and LOVED it! Highly recommend.
