I can’t believe it’s December already. How time flies. 2009 was such a better year all around than 2008 was. I won’t go into details. Just suffice it to say that 2008 was a flush in the porcelain throne while 2009 resided in a much better place.
I took the plunge and joined Twitter. StephanieLMcGee is the name it comes up on over there. I can’t figure out how to link it or I would. If I’m quiet over there, just know it’s because I’m trying to figure out how best to utilize it. That and I’ll be writing like mad the next few days.
I talked about my TBR and book wishlists yesterday. Books make me happy. I want to be able to surround myself with books someday. Just have a nice library in which to sit and read.
Something akin to this, only a little cozier.
That’s a portion of the reading room at the British Museum. It’s a big circular room mostly lined with bookshelves. And those shelves are crammed with wonderful tomes that you have to have a membership to access. (Same goes for the British Library, but the British Library’s display room is free of charge. First Folio Shakespeare, illuminated Chaucer, original Beowulf. It’s fabulous. Oh, and Jane Austen’s writing desk.)
Yeah, someday. I’d rather have books than clothes, as I proved to myself the other day when I got my first paycheck. Rather than blow it on clothes, like I easily could have, I opted to go to the bookstore. I did some Christmas shopping and spoiled myself. Books, books, and more books.
I need more space to store them all in, though. Alas, they’ll have to return to their boxes soon enough.
Q4U: Do you like this Friday feature? Or should I just discontinue it and only post 3 days a week?
