books

GUYS GUYS GUYS.

LOOK LOOK LOOK.



I have a set of thrifting blogs I read (mainly: one blog, and then all the links in her sidebar), and last Saturday morning, I came by a post not 24 hours old about an estate sale where someone mentioned finding a bunch of old things, including books, she had listed in her Etsy shop. I went over to see the pics, and HOLY HELL, MY BELOVED AND HIGHLY COVETED MARGUERITE HENRY BOOK. Album of Dogs -- or rather, an earlier edition, under a different title and cover.

I am 100% caught up on my TV for the week!

Hurrah, LJ has fixed most of its problems with the RTE! You can edit text inside the cut without destroying it! Unfortunately, it has yet to correct the problem where the "restore saved draft" option does away with your spacing between paragraphs.

Still euphoric about my dog book. Tomorrow I'm hitting up two church sales on their $2-3 bag sale day and driving a wild amount of distance -- over 10 miles one way -- to go to this sale solely because I was promised "thousands of books, 99% 25 cents, closing eBay and Amazon book business" and the ad claimed there would be vintage children's books as well. I feel like I've probably already used up my luck, but...here's hoping. Personally, I can't believe the sale season is still going strong. Awesome weather FTW.

I wish the TV season wasn't dragging its heels so badly this season. I really want to do a snapshot State of the Networks update, because I now have much clearer opinions of what I'm looking forward to vs. what is a chore, but I feel like I should wait for House first. ...Ah, what the hell.
