Traveling and Books

Of course I waited too long to buy tickets to Germany. I'm not sure now why I didn't buy them before . . .

It looks like Friday I will be taking a nineteen-hour bus ride to Leipzig . . . Good thing I bought some books!

Twilight was better than I first said, but I still argue that much of the cheesy, girly stuff could go. I'm not sure I'll read the other two. I definitely will not buy them. Alana is keeping Twilight.

We stopped by the biggest Waterstone's in London and I couldn't help but gather books. I had about eight in my hands when reality set in. I bought four: Forever in Blue: the Fourth Summerhood of the Pants, A Picture of Dorian Gray (Oscar Wilde), The Yellow Wallpaper and Other Stories (Gilman), and another I can't remember at the moment. Let me just say that they will fit in my suitcase and they were on sale. Let me also say that I have enjoyed Dorian Gray immensely, even though nothing has even really happened yet. I even started over to underline and write notes all over it. I wish I could study it at Uni! All the contradictions are superb.

  1. I've wanted to read The Picture of Dorian Grey! How exciting. Oh, and being in London while reading it is exciting too, I guess. ;)
