“I believe in the magic of books. I believe that during certain periods in our lives we are drawn to particular books—whether it’s strolling down the aisles of a bookshop with no idea whatsoever of what it is that we want to read and suddenly finding the most perfect, most wonderfully suitable book staring us right in the face. Unblinking. Or a chance meeting with a stranger or friend who recommends a book we would never ordinarily reach for. Books have the ability to find their own way into our lives.”—
the other day i met a woman at my bus stop and we ended up talking about books the whole bus ride home (she lives in my neighborhood.) i looked the book up and it is right up my alley. i cannot wait to go buy it or get it from the library. it just seems fantastic.
Exactly. The Kindle is a great idea, and a lot of people are reading again. There is just nothing better than sitting down with an actual book and being able to highlight in it and underline things. I'm in the wrong decade!
seriously! i guess that on kindles you can highlight or underline things, but then no one else sees it! honestly, one of my favorite little surprises is getting a book from the library, and seeing underlined quotes and writing in the margins.
we are not setting an alarm. we’re going to start our day off the best way. i think we’re going to Olive Garden if the weather cooperates. even if it storms all day, i am 110% alright with just ordering pizza and watching movies and cuddling and just spending all day together.
i think this is how i have learned that we are in love with each other (or just crazy). we can spend hours and hours and hours together and not be sick of each other, and still find things to talk about and do together.
hi! hi! hi! it's your T.B.!! i don't think you sound like an airhead. mostly i'm just super excited too! also, the weather is gross where i live too. booooo.
yay! haha, i was reading through my answers again in the e-mail i sent and was a wee bit embarrassed by myself and my apparent confusion with the whole concept of tumblr buddies. but i am super excited for buddies! can’t wait to hear more from you :)
I just realized that i probably sound like such an airhead to my new tumblr buddy, ha! After a 12 hour day at work I threw out my knowledge that it was like a secret Santa and gave stupid answers about replies and not sharing my info.
Sorry tumblr buddy :( at least you will find all the info you may ever need right on this tumblr.
And I’m so excited to start sending my buddy some things!!!!
And the weather right now is gross :( a weekend of bakery work leaves me feeling hangover on Monday’s.
