So I brought 3 books. 8th Grade Superzero -which I was almost done with anyway. Let the Great World Spin, which I’ve been fighting to get into ever since I finished This Side of Brightness also by Colum McCann. And then just in case I needed more YA, I also threw in If I Stay. Luckily the bnb had so many great magazines, I never even came close to running out of reading material.
On our way out of town, we stopped at the great local bookstore Rock City. There I picked up a copy of The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep and Never Had To. Got to support local independent bookstores after all.
Also at the bookstore I stumbled upon some postcard sized prints by a really neat artist. Jane Mount does portraits of people’s favorite books. She calls it Ideal Bookshelves. You can even order a custom print of a special someone’s favorite books! I think I’ll be dropping hints quite frequently between now and July 7th!
