Happy Blumesday!


Some of you have maybe heard of Bloom's Day, which celebrates James Joyce. Well, I've ready Ulysses, twice, and I still don't get it. Another author, who I do get, and love, is Judy Blume. So, some writers decided she needed a day too. I couldn't agree more.

Happy Blumesday!

A great celebration for a great author.

I love this idea!

Awesome. I saw her a while ago on Tavis Smiley's talk show, and she's everything you'd think - smart, witty, and warm.

Judy Blume = much better than James Joyce!

I never read Ulysses, but I did have to read A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man -- also twice -- in college. And UGH!

Great idea - she deserves it.

I really, REALLY need to read Ulysses.

I don't think I've ever seen a picture of Judy Blume before.

Her books are a delight.

As to Ulysses, I've waded through it and come out dazed.

Heat! Hear! Happy Blumesday, Matt :-)

Just Blume is awesome!

A pioneer in MG for girls.

Kudos to anyone who reads ULYSSES twice!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Good call! I LOVE Judy Blume's books for kids.

What a lovely idea! Judy Blume is a gem. She has tackled to picks that still haven't been dealt with as honestly and well. LOVE her!

And Ulysses. Twice. Wow. Hat's off. There isn't enough ale in Dublin to make me do that to myself!

Sarah Tokeley said...

Excellent idea. My one constant in life, growing up :-)

Happy Blume's Day!! Judy Blume is one of my favorite authors. I loved her books when I was a kid and teenager, and I still love re-reading them. I really enjoy her adult novels, too. She's an amazing writer!

Happy reading and writing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

And Happy Blumes day to you, as well!

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Happy Blumes Day to you both.

Christina Lee said...

AWESOME!!! I heart that lady and her books!

Kiera Paul said...

Couldn't agree more! I grew up on her and hope my daughter will too :)

Charlie Holmberg said...

Not an author I've read, but if she has her own day maybe I should crack a book, eh? ;)

Kelly Polark said...

I adore her!
She was about an hour away and I would have loved to see her for a signing, but we were out of town. Darn it.
