As I said in my last entry,
I've headed back to school.
Which means, I might not have as much time to post on this blog.
Because, aaarrgh, look at my homework for last week!
Holy cats, but I had a BUTTLOAD of reading to do.
And it was just the second week!
Anyhoo, I'll post shorty entries when I can.
For example, I've been collecting book inscriptions for awhile!
I love their history. I love their smudges. I love that they were loved.
Something else I love is if a used book has an inscription in it.
This was in the front of Horton Hears A Who.
What a nice present for someone with a rambunctious boy:
a copy of Calvin and Hobbes.
I think of these like messages in a bottle,
and was surprised when I realized I knew both the bottle-sender
and the bottle-receiver.
This one is my favorite. Alyssa has nicely summed up
The Wish, a book that turned my own Girl into an enthusiastic reader.
I love new books,
but there's something really special about finding one of these
messages in a bottle in an old book.
