Valentine's Day

My sweet, sweet boyfriend got me an incredibly generous Valentine's Day gift this weekend-- a gift card to my favorite local used book store. He knows better than to pick me out books himself, even though he did buy me a beautiful Easton Press leather-bound copy of Dickens' Great Expectations to hide the gift card in. He also hid the gift-card-hiding book on my bookshelf for me to find, and I hate to admit that it took me an embarrassingly long time to find it.

So, now I get to have fun fantasizing over which books I might use my gift card towards. I'm thinking the following are a few potential options:

  • Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind
  • Fyodor Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov
  • Brian Selznick's The Invention of Hugo Cabret
  • Susan Cooper's Over Sea, Under Stone
  • Kate Beaton's Hark! A Vagrant
  • J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood 
  • Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell
  • Charles Bukowski's Ham on Rye
  • Frank Herbert's Dune
  • Anything at all written by Tennessee Williams 

Jeff, if you are reading this, thanks again, my love! You are the best.
