liberry wid lindsayloo


last night i went to the library with lindsay.  it was the first time i did homework at night in the library in over two years.  it was good-ish.. i think i was productive. sorta. maybe i'll try it again sometime. but the section we were in down on the second floor was playing music. and it wasn't the kind of music they play in that special room in the testing center, where its gentle and soft classical music.  this was like "classical music goes to the circus and the clowns gave the volume laughing gas." this may or may not be an exaggerated metaphor.

oh and these books are the new penguin hardcover classics. and i want the whole collection. not only because the covers are fabulously creamy, but also because i love classic literature. particularly "a tale of two cities." favorite book ever. read it. really. do it. do it. tomorrow. or today. you little over achiever you.

  1. As an English teacher, it humiliates me to admit that I've never read "A Tale of Two Cities." But your "you little overacheiver you" made me laugh, and then feel motivated. So, perhaps. And I NEED that entire volume of pretty books.

  2. oh so spectacularly beautiful. I love books. I especially love to buy them, even though I rarely get around to reading for pleasure. I have stacks to read already, but these beautiful covers just may have to make it to my new shelves. hmmmm. Christmas anyone?
