I love putting things into various kinds of order, and then I love writing them all down in lists.
Here is a list of books that I would like to own nice copies of, excluding books that I already own even though I would love to have fancier copies of them to make my shelves look more beautiful:
- The Silmarillion by JRR Tolkien
- Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
- Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Doestoevsky
- One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
- The Complete Works of Shakespeare
- War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
- The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky
- Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes
- Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
- Dune by Frank Herbert
I'm limiting it to ten, or else it would go on potentially forever. It's sort of a shopping list, except I have forbidden myself from purchasing any more books in the next six months. So really it's just a list for me to covet.
I'm trying to catch up on all those books I feel like I was supposed to read but never got around to, mostly because of school. I've resolved to actually read the Lord of the Rings all the way through and I'm currently working on Les Miserables. I'm a whole 300-some pages into it, but Hugo suddenly stopped telling me the story and started narrating the battle of Waterloo to me and I'm a wee bit confused.
I have a job interview coming up. It was supposed to be on last Wednesday, but we had nine inches of snow followed by sleet on Monday and every single street was iced up, so it was put off until Friday, but on Thursday the facility was still inaccessible so it was delayed again until Tuesday. SO I GET LIKE AN ENTIRE EXTRA WEEK TO FREAK OUT OMG YAY
I shoveled snow for the first time in my life! Considering this is Georgia, it was not a skill I ever expected to need, nor did I have adequate tools (like a snow shovel) on hand. It was fun, though!
I am incredibly boring aaaaaaaaaaaa
