notes

*I'd heard rumor that this existed a couple months ago but was so unbelievably excited when I saw someone actually reading a copy on the bus tonight.. (see a review here). As if some genius thought to combine two of my most absolutely favorite things EVER. I must get my hands on one this as soon as humanly possible.



*Yesterday, I recieved an e-mail from a new gallery/coffee house space, Art on Clark, in Andersonville that will be opening up soon, asking if I might like to host a monthly reading series, which opens up some exciting possibilities. More on this soon..

*This year I'm taking part in a SuburbanPenPal's paper swap (everybody makes papery goodies and then sends them around to the other participants.) I'm working on some handmade postcards and some broadside like things (which will be handed out at The Printers Ball this year as well.)I will post photos of what I send and what I recieve in the next month or so.

*Tomorrow night I will be off to the boonies for all the usual 4th of July festivities, potato salad, fried chicken and neighborhood illegal pyrotechnics. It's a quickie trip home, but I'm always aching to get out of the city during the summer anyway. Yesterday, my apartment building hallway smelled like an odd mix of pancakes, bacon, and insect repellant and I so badly wanted to go camping. All of which seems like a good idea until we usually actually do it.

Awesome! Congrats on the reading series. That looks like it'll be a lot of fun.

Watching illegal fireworks beats fighting the downtown crowds any day. We just need to hope and pray they don't accidentally burn down our house...

I saw this book in Target the other day and immediately thought how much my 8th graders would love it, first for the cover, then for the vampires.

We bought this for my 12-year-old niece last week when she visited. I wanted her to read it since PandP is my favorite novel. Sadly, she liked another book we got her better ("TTYL"). Alas, there is still hope.

Someone gave me Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for my birthday last weekend! Very exciting.
