Was so happy when I got home from work Monday and saw my book club selection had arrived. It's called Wild Swans : Three Daughters of China by Jung Chang. I've been having trouble with Amazon lately, so I decided to try another online book site called Biblio. The other book that I ordered from them arrived last week, so I think I'll give this company a try. I like being able to use my PayPal account too.
I painted my journal page with red and ochre acrylics (need to get some paint on my paper plates for a future project!) Then I glued bits of the mailing envelope, the shipping order page, a photo that I had and other scraps that reminded me of China.
The book is a true story about a Chinese woman, and the lives of her mother and grandmother in the 20th century. It's a thick little paperback and I'm excited to start it. I was reading the chronology in the beginning of the book and was taken by something she wrote for the year 1975 "Father dies. I meet my first foreigners." She is a little older than me (she was born in 1952) so it should be very interesting.
This post is for Week 8 of Glue it Tuesday.
