      The #bookview with one of my current reads. A cover in barn red is never wrong. (Do not attempt to correct me on the color. We have the can of paint that anointed our table. Clearly, this lovely book matches. And this makes me happy, even as my confession to you is that I did not love Confessions my first time through. It keeps bugging me though, showing up and almost #saintstalking. So here I am. Here it is.) ...
