we had an incredible day yesterday. we got up early and headed off to fairfield, to get my haircut. we then went to fabulous trader joes and majorly stocked up, and picked up another one of their great reuseable bags.
then, the highlight of the day, we headed over to the amazing pequot library annual booksale. now, alas, i no longer can attend the penn state booksale, but the pequot rivals it in its greatness. i should have taken pictures while there! but it was great. also wasn’t too too hot so enjoyable so paruse as well. i decided to focus on illustrated kids books and nature books this year. i have way too much fiction to read, so only picked up acouple of those. josh went nuts on political books, which are awesome to get on sale.
probably my favorite thing i got was a ralph steadman alice in wonderland illustrated book. i have this idea of collecting lots of versions of illustrated alice. i can only imagine it’s a dream project to illustrate and there’s so many different versions. ralph steadman (illustrator of tons of hunter thompson stuff), is one of my favorites, so awesome to get!
then we had delicious sushi at fin with my parents heading home with NO traffic! which, in the summer is an amazing thing.
so wonderful, happy day.2 comments
