  1. I liked the movie, The Witches of Eastwick, but honestly had no clue it was based on a book. Happy November!

    • As with many movies, I think it was changed quite a bit for the screen. Sounds like more fun than the book to me.

    I found some new books on your post today. Thank you! I haven’t heard about these.

  3. I haven’t heard any of the books you listed here, and some of their titles alone sound fascinating. I’ll be sure to check them out now! Hope November is treating you well!

    • Well Cilla, November has not exactly been a bed of roses here in the USA. But life continues and I’m grateful for small mercies — and for books.

  4. You’ve been steadily reading through the Betty McDonald oeuvre for sure! I hadn’t realized there was more beyond Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, whom I still sometime think of when washing dishes or (less frequently) making my bed.
