TBTB (Throwback Thursday Books) - James Thurber’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Other Pieces by James Thurber | LibraryThing

Last weekend, I finally saw the film based on the short story “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.” Even though I hadn’t touched Thurber’s work since junior high, I could see the film adaptation was updated (probably for relevance). Also, there seemed to be a few other details changed. Still and all, films often revive…

TBTB (Throwback Thursday Books) - John Knowles’ A Separate Peace

A Separate Peace by John Knowles | LibraryThing Today’s #tbtb is the first of its kind in this feature. John Knowles’ A Separate Peace isn’t one of my favorite reads.
