Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday February 21st 2013

Throwback Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by The Housework Can Wait and Never to fond of Books.

It's the nature of book blogging to focus mainly on new releases, but there are thousands of great books out there that haven't seen the "New Releases" shelf in years. We hope to be able to bring attention to some older titles that may or not be at the top of the current bestseller list, but still deserve a spot in your To-Be-Read pile.

You don't have to be a book blogger to participate! You can put up a Throwback Thursday post on your non-bookish blog; or if you don't have a blog at all you can use the comments to tell us about a book your remember fondly.

And NOW! We’re expanding! Throwback Thursday is no longer limited to just books! Throwback Thursday is dedicated to shining the spotlight on any book-related old favorites that need to be remembered.What’s your favorite classic television show or movie adaptation? What about your favorite song? Was your favorite toy a character from a book?
Here’s how it works:
  • Pick any media (or non-media item) released more than 5 years ago. Remember to keep it book-related!
  • Write up a short summary (include the title, author, and cover art, if applicable) and an explanation of why you love it. Make sure to link back to The Housework Can Wait and Never Too Fond of Books in your post.
  • Link up your post at The Housework Can Wait or Never Too Fond of Books.
  • Visit as many blogs as you can, reminisce about books you loved, and discover some “new” books for your TBR list – or some other classic
Been on base all morning, then dog sitting since I got done on base. Now I'm home with a chance to blog. 

This Week's Choice

Mary Poppins 
by P.L. Travers, Mary Shepard 
Originally published 1934
Julie Andrews & Dick Van Dyke


From the moment Mary Poppins arrives at Number Seventeen Cherry-Tree Lane, everyday life at the Banks house is forever changed. This classic series tells the story of the world's most beloved nanny, who brings enchantment and excitement with her everywhere she goes. Featuring the charming original cover art by Mary Shepard, these new editions are sure to delight readers of all ages.

It all starts when Mary Poppins is blown by the east wind onto the doorstep of the Banks house. She becomes a most unusual nanny to Jane, Michael, and the twins. Who else but Mary Poppins can slide upbanisters, pull an entire armchair out of an empty carpetbag, and make a dose of medicine taste like delicious lime-juice cordial? A day with Mary Poppins is a day of magic and make-believe come to life!

I love this book and movie it's been ages since I read the book but only month since I last saw the movie. It's one of those classics I used to watch with my mom. I love the music but my favorite part is the carousel horses I used to wish I could do that when we went to the park. I think it's time to read the book again I think I have it in a box. After all I am moving and all my poor beautiful books are packed.

  1. Never read the book - the movie is great! Excellent choice. Is this an example, in your opinion, where the movie did the book justice?

  2. I so need to read this book! I saw the Broadway musical a couple years ago, which I believe actually follows the book a little closer than the movie -- at least that's what I've heard -- and that was also fabulous. Excellent pick!
