Whatever Wednesday - Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow

 I am preparing to meet my PA gang in Pinehurst, NC.  We  all turn 65 and meet every five years to celebrate.  Plus we do our book club. 

OMG - this is always a noisy gathering. I've know two since junior high, one other since high school, and two from college.  Alas, we do have a member from high school who passed (Terri). 

So, our special gathering book club features Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin and it was an  excellent book.  

Sam Masur, Sadie  Green, and Marx are memorable characters. Genius kids who create video games. The book covers a world I knew nothing about, but ended up being fascinated by. 

cover blurb - This book is a dazzling and intricately imagined  novel that examines  the multifarious nature  of identity, disability, failure, and redemptive possibilities in play, and above all, our need to connect: to be loved and to love.  

I have so many markers for this book. Every page had a quote to save.   I loved this story,  the characters and the writing.  It's a wow. 

pg. 336  "What is a game?" Marx said. " It's tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow. It's the possibility of infinite rebirth, infinite redemption. The idea is you keep playing, you could win. No loss is permanent, because nothing is permanent, ever. " 

Trust me. This book will  blow your mind. 


  1. Nothing is ever permanent - that would be nice.
    Enjoy your trip to our neck of the woods. Be warned - it is really dang hot here now!

    1. Thanks. I doubt it could be hotter than Texas has been. And we are humid too. Oh well. The place has air!

  2. Happy Birthday to you and all your friends. Sounds like a fun gathering.

    I like the quote from page 336. Wise words!

    1. Thanks. It's a fun tradition every five years. But our gatherings get less active and food choices seem pickier. Ha!
