Lazy Days of Summer?

So, my plan was to write an awesome post about some cool things I’ve seen lately but life, in the form of six loads of laundry, intervened. I decided that I should stop procrastinating and get it done… Which I did.

I also finished the last book of the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy (more on that in another post)…

… made two playlists on Spotify and listened to Nero’s Welcome Reality

Um, but not necessarily in that order! Anyway, that’s what I did with my day off. I didn’t really do anything but I feel like that was a lot for one day! Until next time…

Totally Inspiring Room

From La Maison Boheme.

I’d like to be somewhere like this right now: quiet, old, beautiful, filled with books. It seems as if it could be a little slice of heaven on earth.

I hope you’re having a happy Tuesday, everyone. See you tomorrow. 🙂

Reading Room: Water For Elephants

My sis wanted me to get this book for her when I was working at the book distributor but we literally ran out the day she asked me. I was disappointed, she was disappointed and our plan to read the book together was foiled.

In the meantime I moved to Charlotte. She moved from an apartment to a house… and we still hadn’t laid hands on copies of the book.

Until last week.

My crazy, wonderful sister bought me a copy to (along with the Vanity Fair with RPattz on the cover…) and mailed it to me along with some other goodies (Kings of Leon, Paramore, and NKOTB discs). We’re going to read a 142 pages a week for three weeks, discussing as we read via text, twitter and phone calls. Then when the movie comes out later this month, we’ll see that (in our respective cities) as well.

Yesterday she suggested that we reread The Three Musketeers, which we read to each other when we were roommates and she was preggers with my now 15 year old (!) nephew. I think it’s a good idea. And there is a new movie for that one too.

I think I’m going to call this the Sisters Long Distance Book Club… or not.
