the bookstore is my friend.

A boy doesn't have to fight a war to be a hero, he can say he doesn't like pie when he sees there isn't enough to go around.
Edgar Watson Howe


My favorite part of our trip to the bookstore last night was looking over the book The Art of Manliness. It was worth purchasing alone for the list, "100 Books Every Boy Should Read" in the very back, but after I read the quote above, I was won over -- and all it read after that was: buy me.

Other books purchased:
Skeletons at a Feast - by: Chris Bohjalian
Mrs. Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - by: Ransom Riggs

I bought both of these after reading only a few pages (so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!) but I always feel the need to purchase books that I'll actually read after spending money on textbooks that I'll probably only use once this semester.

And now with the falling snow, (you're three weeks too late and not necessary anymore in my humble opinion) I plan on keeping company with my new books and my desire to do anything but get out of bed until I absolutely must.
Happy weekend!

I know I'm not technically part of your life right now (besides blog reading and thinking of you occasionally) I would like to please please see you sometime again before I die. You have to meet my husband and I must be invited your wedding! :) Happy New Year!

my suggestion... return mrs. peregrine while you can (it wasn't that great in my opinion) and get the happiness project instead. it's a great read to start the new year off with. :)

and i think you commented forever ago on my blog and yes, i think we were in the same heritage ward together freshman year. glad you're doing good!
