This morning i took a walk, music played in my ears drowning out the passing cars. My feet moved swiftly, pounding the pavement to the new beat. I found myself in a used bookstore. Shelves fully stacked with endless novels, piles upon piles of stories awaiting a young lass like myself to dive into the filled pages. I ended up with 3 buys. The first pick is dear to my heart and brings back a flood of memories, The Box Car Children: Mystery Ranch by Gertrude Chandler Warner. My Second find was a most delightful one, its called Adventures in the Open...published in 1935. It's brilliant. Last yet far from least, i dug through the stacks of books lifted up a few boxes and there it was at the bottom, staring me in face saying "i've been waiting for you, it's about time." This one in particular i have very much anticipation to read. I am currently a wee bit in love with the movie. It's none other than Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. The journey home began, smile plastered upon my face and a glimmer in my eye. Success was mine!


  1. Pride and Prejudice is by far my most favorite love story EVER. I'm sure you've been watching the Keira Knightly version of the movie, but the best version - in my opinion - is the BBC one (or A&E) with Colin Firth. It's about 5 hours long and does a good job of pretty much covering the whole story. The Keira Knightly version skips ALOT of the book, which is sad.

  2. Lauren, i've been wanting to watch the 5 hour version ALL year, but haven't had the chance.
