Holes on the wall

How often do you get to a cafe with part of its walls like this?


To be honest I had no idea what was this. But I love literature, and I am always thrilled to spot references to it in places I do not expect them to be at. A bit of skimming tells me this is from a novel called Holes by Louis Sachar.  It won the 1998 National Book Award for Young People's Literature, and was adapted into a film in 2003.

What adds to my delight is finding that in 1999 Holes won the Newbery Medal for "most distinguished contribution to American literature for children."


'For Children.' As moms aren't we always on the lookout for media that we would consider sharing to our kids?


This post is linked with Happiness is... and Mommy Moments.

  1. I have actually never been to a restaurant that has walls like the one in your photo. I know for sure that seeing one of those here in the Philippines will surely delight my child.

  2. Ang galing at naisip nilang maglagay ng lines from a poetry. Nakakatawag kasi yan ng pansin. See? It got your attention who loves poetry. I love it! I especially love the second stanza.

  4. I've never been to a cafe like that... Well, our cafes here are just too simple but still, it would be amazing to have stuff like that.. Especially for me, since I'm a quote addict! :P

  5. for the love of art! :) that's very good poetry. i haven't been to a cafe that has poetry scribbled on its walls, but this reminded me of TTC buses and subway in Toronto. every once in a while, for a period of time, the TTC would put up Canadian poetry posters into buses and trains, and it fascinates me a lot reading those :)

    thanks for sharing this over at Happiness Is. hope to see you there again next week for another round of happy posts :)
