Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

—Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

School Books

Strike while the coffee's hot.

That's my motto for today.

Maybe I'll have another cup. Who needs breakfast or lunch when you can have coffee?

I'm going to visit three bookstores today. One of them is my workplace, because one must work. One is the little used bookstore downtown, to get a couple books I need read by next week for class, and one is the campus bookstore where I can get some used books for cheap.

I'm excited to finally purchase some Jane Austen for my personal library. I was going to buy Persuasion at work last night, but the copy they had didn't suit my fancy. If I'm going to own Austen, it had better look damn good. I'm hoping BookPeople downtown will have a nice copy.

I love the BookPeople sign. I love the griffins.
