I always loved doing that, and I got another chance this morning. My granddaughter (Ara) came by for a while, so with her list we went to two local used bookstores plus a Barnes & Noble. She is taking three literature classes this semester – American Lit covering 1800-1900, a Science Fiction, and another course called “The literature of revenge”. Shakespeare will certainly be part of the last one!
We found all the books on the American Lit class, including three at B&N that will be shipped to her house in PA. I got my book fix for today, although I need to go to the library to pick up a book I had ordered. I watch BookTV on weekends and am constantly jotting down authors and titles that I might be interested in. Sometimes I don’t read much of a particular book and it goes back to the library next trip. It’s ironic that how an author speaks doesn’t necessarily reflect on how much you will like their writing.
Today is sunny and feels warm at 60F. I love the sunny days but worry about when we finally get some rain. I hope my roof doesn’t leak too badly. I probably should have lived with the grungy interior and had the roof resurfaced, but I live on the inside and not on the roof. I just love the way the interior is coming together, and it is about time for me to get my painter’s hat back on.
