FRAMED PICTURE OF BOOKS I’LL PROBABLY NEVER READ …
In December I was wandering around Borders and found a little orange box full of classic Penguin book covers. You know, The Great Gatsby, The Odyssey, Wuthering Heights — that type of thing. So I bought the little orange box, took it home and decided to turn it into this: (thank you to the Framing Corner at Toowong).
Of the 28 books pictured, I’ve only read about a third if that … maybe a quarter. Who am I kidding? I’ve read two: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (which I loved) and A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf.
Now I’ve just gotta work out where to hang the sucker. I’m thinking in our dining room. Then my friends and I can sit around talking about how we are definitely going to read more of the classics … before we all go home to our beds and read Twilight. Again.
(Actually I read Twilight and I was a bit “eh” about it. Bella needs a personality transplant). Right? RIGHT? The books I most love to re-read are probably The Girl’s Guide to Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Bank and Brother of the More Famous Jack by Barbara Trapido.
Ava on the other hand is happy for me to read her Meg and Mog on loop. Until I go just a little tiny bit mental.
Maybe this month I will attempt to read The Big Sleep.
