In which the location I work in is a dangerous place. (For me, anyway.)
Woah. Huh. That’s weird. How did I end up here on my lunch break?
It was a really, really, really bad idea to take a job at an office that’s literally like right around the corner from Barnes and Noble. I love my job so much, don’t get me wrong, but I just know exactly where all my paychecks are gonna go.
So yes. Today I was just minding my own business, eating my lunch, and suddenly I was just transported, totally against my will, to Barnes and Noble! Crazy, huh?
But, since I was there, I decided I might as well buy some books so as not to waste my time. I know: very conscientious of me. Thank you, I try.
But just…JUST LOOK AT THEM!!!
Okay, yes, I already have a volume that contains Jane Austen novels (though this one has a few more) and also, yes, I have a volume of Sherlock stories (and actually technically now I have three, because I semi-permanently loaned one to my brother) but these are just…just too good to pass up!
And it was buy one get one 50% off. I mean, that just kind of seems like a waste to not buy two, you know?
And I just really enjoy Robert Frost’s poetry. And it’s a really gorgeous book and it’s all shiny and the cover is that great flexible fake-leathery material? You know? You can’t tell that well in the picture, but the trees are silver foil. Just so gorgeous!
And when you see how happy I am with my books, can you really begrudge me that?
Have a lovely day!
