Booking Through Thursday

But, enough about books. . . what else do you read?? Magazines? Newspapers? Professional journals? Cereal boxes? Phone books? Purchase invoices? Homework?
(Please be specific. There may be a test later.)

I am a confessed magazine junkie. I read Oprah when I'm trying to pretend to be peaceful, Family Circle and Women's Day when I like to pretend that I'm actually going to try all those recipes I cut out, Family Fun when I like to pretend that I will have the time to be crafty with the kids, Real Simple cause I like to fake at being all organized and stuff and Newsweek and Natioanl Geographic when I want to play at being smart. I will also go to the library and just pick out magazines with headlines that catch my attention.
I like to read zines. I really haven't been able to afford any lately, but I like to just go to distros and pick up some that sound interesting. Homespun, East Village Inky are good ones.
I will pick up an occasional newspaper and read it. I usually just do the crossword, but every once in a blue moon I'll actually read one of the articles.
I have also been know to read bumper stickers, license plates, menus, cereal boxes, owner's manuals, food packaging, soda cans and misc papers found on the street.

Booking Through Thursday

  1. Do you own any bookends? If so, how many sets? If not, do you need or want any? I've always had dreams of fancy looking bookends on perfectly arranged bookshelves in my tastefully decorated library/den. But I'm a newly single mom to 4 small kids in a crappy apartment. My books are my bookends.

  2. Which are your favorites? How long have you had them? I've surronded myself with books since I learned to read at 3. The best books to use as bookends are hardback novels. They stack up right nicely.
