Finished Amy Poehler's "Yes Please" earlier this evening. Confession: I have yet to watch an episode of "Parks and Rec." Yes, really. But I did attend a dress rehearsal of SNL about 11 years ago. There is always hope.

Goldie: "Here's the story. I'm an actor and I also have a job at the ballet subscription department at Lincoln Center. I went to a violin concert by Alicia Svigals and she's playing beautiful songs, Klezmer music, very Fiddler on the Roof. But then she starts a particular song and it grips me - it sounds like Marlene Dietrich, who I had the pleasure of meeting before. The next day I wake up and I think I should write a show with Alicia Svigals. Because of her, I pull together this vision that knocks me out. I finally get to meet her and tell her about my idea. The story is about these men who all suffer in their own way and think they can sell insurance to each other only to find out that they're all insurance sales men. When I meet Alicia she's in love with the fact that I heard Marlene Dietrich in her voice and I tell her about my idea for a show. She asks me if I know any producers who would put this show together and I say, no, I thought you would. You see how this all connects? Anyway, Alicia recommended this book to me. It tells the history of the creation of the Fiddler on the Roof. It's a remarkable piece of research for me at this point. We are still looking for producers." Goldie reading Wonder of Wonders by Alisa Solomon.

Today is my birthday. On some levels - the part of me that still chases fireflies and makes wishes on dandelion fluff - I find it a happy day. But today, I am not happy, and I don't know why. It's as if the fireflies have all burned out and the dandelions have all but disappeared. I cannot find the joy. Perhaps it blew away on the last of the dandelion fluff. I'll never know. #amwriting #amreading #inspiration #dream #hope #love #actor #actorslife #broken #actors #gorgeous #journey #model #fashiondiaries #glamour #photography #selfie #selfies #redhead #redheads #red #redheadsdoitbetter #ginger #health #writersofinstagram #depressed #journal #birthday

I've always loved fairy tales; the adventures, and the bravery, the romance, the impossible odds, and the characters who overcome. . I know that at their basest, most are morality tales. Much like the rules to surviving a horror movie, there are rules for how innocent one must be to defeat the ultimately flawed and evil witch. . But perhaps that's why I was so drawn to Maguire's works, because he took the fairytale and dosed it with harsh reality. Everyone is flawed, and he loves to show this; and in the flaws, characters find strength. . My fav of his is #ConfessionsofanUglyStepsister but I particularly liked #Lost as well. Have you read his work? Which did you love best? . #fairytale #gregorymaguire #mirrormirror #bookstagram #bookstagramfeature #apples #poisonapple #blackeyedsusans #booksandflowers #locket #cinderella #snowwhite #amreading #books #booknerd #read #reading #dagger #galaapple #clover #bookpost #bookaddict #booklover #coverart #prettybooks #bookworm #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram

What do you prefer physical books or ebooks? • I miss my physical books...nuff said ?. While I love having my nook for when I travel, I love the feel of a book between my fingers. I feel like I can connect with the book better; whereas, with a ebook I don't get the attachment with the characters or plot as easily - I don't know why! • The boyfriend booked his ticket to come and see me ? and poor guy gets to bring an extra suitcase for all the stuff I'm sending back home ? - thanks baby!! • • • • • #ebook #qotd #bookcover #bookhoarder #bookjunkie #bookgasm #bookphotography #totalbooknerd #alwaysreading #hardback #becauseofbooks #yalit #becauseofreading #igreads #bookstagramfeature #theravenking #theravencycle #maggiestievater #amreading #booknerdigan #bibliophile #booksph #booktography
