P is for Philadelphia Planes Pull Plummer Phillps Postcards

I’ve had a love affair with postcrossing the last few years (even receiving a postcard from Ukraine this week and going on to exchange a few emails about the state of affairs there, more on that when we come to U).  I’ve received 175 postcards from around the world and two of them fit this month’s challenge very well.

authorSusan Elizabeth Phillips

I first read Dream a Little Dream in 1998 and quickly went on to read the rest of her backlist and then eagerly await her new releases.  Do yourself a favor and try one of her quick-witted and sassy romances.

moviea tie…The Philadelphia Story, 1940  AND Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, 1987

I’ve looked at this choice a few times over the last week and I’ve decided that I can only take the easy way out.  I love both of these movies.

bookPull of the Moon by Elizabeth Berg

The first Berg book I read and so far it’s my favorite.  I recommend this book highly to women who want to see glimpses of themselves in a flawed but, oh-so-recognizable, heroine.

actorChristopher Plummer

He will always be Captain Von Trapp to me (The Sound of Music), but he’s had a lot of great movies in the past 10 years or so.

  3. Wow, beautiful postcards! I also love a similarly-titled P movie, Philadelphia, with Tom Hanks.

  7. I used to be big into sending cards and now I can hardly remember to send out thank you’s. I’ve gotten so bad. 😦 Christopher Plummer will always be Captain Von Trapp to be too.

  8. I love reading about your postcard adventures. I must read a Susan Elizabeth Phillips sometime and I’m adding Pull of the Moon to my wishlist. I’ve only read the one Elizabeth Berg, Home Safe I think it was, ok but I wasn’t bowled over.

  9. Postcrossing is such a great idea. I’m glad you are still enjoying it! I will make sure to send out some fun postcards from Japan while I’m there 🙂

    I really enjoyed Plummer’s role in The Beginners with Ewan McGreggor. They both did fantastic.
