Goodnight Supermoon

This weekend has been lovely for gazing into the night sky. The full moon is at its closest to the earth and is called a Supermoon. I personally think the moon is always super!

Last night was too cloudy here to see the moon rise, but later in the evening the sky cleared and there she was hanging brightly in all her plumpness right outside my kitchen window. 

Here are four books that I have read that have Moon in the title: 

Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik
The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
Summer Moonshine by P.G. Wodehouse
Drawing Down the Moon by Margot Adler

Others I can think of but haven't read:

The Moonspinners by Mary Stewart 
The Moon and Sixpence by W. Somerset Maugham
From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne
Moonraker by Ian Fleming

Can you think of any others? Even if you can't, enjoy the moonlight tonight.


  1. Belle! (Luna!) Interesting idea. Unfortunately local cloud cover for days has hampered ability to see this rarity.
    Ok, here are my entries:
    One hilarious and one heart-breaking

    Full Moon by P.G. Wodehouse

    The Boy in the Moon: A Father's Journey to Understand His Extraordinary Son

    1. I am sure I have read 'Full Moon' - the funny one. Am not familiar with the heart-breaking one. I don't read much heartbreak. Thanks for playing, Tullik.

    2. Hi Belle!
      I just realized I omitted the authors name from "The Boy in the Moon" ...his name is
      Ian Brown: Canadian journalist and author, winner of several national magazine and newspaper awards.

  2. PS....Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik is a great read!!! Try his book "Winter" also!

    1. 'Paris' is the only book by Mr. Gopnik that I have read and that was ages ago. I will look into 'Winter'. Thanks. You always have good suggestions, Tullik.
