three good things

Lauren Greenfield's Girl Culture. Someone brought this downstairs yesterday from the photo section. A scary and interesting and oh so familiar if you were ever a teenage girl....

Book Reports by Jonah Winter from Octopus Books. These little chaps are bound between the covers of older books, mine a French textbook. Ooh la la. According to the website "extremely limited edition" so move fast...I also noticed they are taking mss. submissions in April. I think girl show is probably too traditional to send them, but other of you more adventurous folks should give them a try. Judging from what I've seen, they make lovely, lovely books.

Carnivale. In my cable-less world, I was late in hearing about this. I've only seen two episodes, but it's good so far, all crazily surreal and dustbowly.

Carnivale is great! It started off a little too slow for me, but it got better and better. Lots of fun!

I loooove Carnivale. My mother grew up in the dustbowl during the 30's, so I felt like I was seeing her childhood when I watched. Except her childhood was a little more twisted.
