This week for Celebrate the Small Things I am celebrating:
- Getting lots of writing done.
2. Getting a free Cinco de Mayo t-shirt from Moe’s (one of my favorite chain eateries ever!) I got there at opening time and there was literally a line around the store. Someone had even brought lawn chairs to sit in. The person I was meeting got there earlier (a half hour earlier) and said there were already people in line ahead of her. Still, fun!
3. Last but not least we went to the library book sale and I got three books, including Fahrenheit 451, which (true confession) I have never actually read. I was debating whether to get it in print or finally read it online after downloading it, because it has to be all over the place right? Right. Then I thought – it’s the kind of book I need to own in print! So I bought it in all of its tattered, used book glory.
I now own the last print copy of Fahrenheit 451. Kidding. But…. You never know! I really need to read this book. I feel like I’ve read it already because people talk about it all the time and I even have a quote from it on my Kindle. I think I avoid it because the mere idea is so scary and horrible I’m afraid it will give me nightmares. I get seriously twitchy just thinking about it – people burning ALL books. But why????
I’ve made up my mind. I will read Fahrenheit 451 just once, in print. And then burn it so I will never have to read it again. Kidding again! Maybe…
How was your week? Done anything you’ve been dreading? Made steps toward doing anything you’ve been dreading? Burned any books lately? Just checking.
