Celebrate the Small Things


This week for Celebrate the Small Things I am celebrating:

  1. 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.

  1. Congrats on the Cinco-de-Mayo shirt! Was the line for the shirts or the food? Congrats on getting that classic book! You have more respect than I do. I’ve spent the last 30 years blocking out all the classics they made us read in school, especially Shakespeare. There’s really no getting away from The Bard though. He’s everywhere. Have a lovely weekend!

  2. Congrats on getting so much writing done and on getting that shirt! There’s a Moe’s not too far from where I live, but I’ve never eaten there. Sounds like I really need to try it. I don’t remember ever reading Fahrenheit 451, though I’ve certainly heard of it. One of these days maybe I will.

  3. Congratulations on the free t-shirt! Sometimes those can be the best ones. I got a free t-shirt at an art expo and it’s one of my favorites now.

    I read Fahrenheit 451 ages ago and went to see Ray Bradbury who was speaking at a local library. I liked the book and the author.

    I need to read more classics, too. I hope you enjoy the book!
