In the spirit of all things literary, my BOOKS: (all my YA lit. is in storage, SADNESS. I need a bigger bookcase)
When I was younger, my books used to be in alphabetical order but then I decided to be gloriously pretentious and I had a colour-coded system. Clearly I couldn't handle it
The books that look really grimy are gifts from my grandfather when he last came to visit - he bought them in like, the late 1950s when he was a university student studying physics and all he could afford was really cheap literature. I LOVE the smell of old books though - it's almost as good as new books!
In the continued spirit of all things literary:
If you could read only one book for the rest of all eternity - what would it be?
I want to be a lot more responsible about my TV-watching because I have a list of sooo many things I want to see and usually I'll watch like, 2 episodes and then give up OR I'll end up completely spoiling myself for a show without having watched a minute of it. BUT NO MORE, MY FRIENDS. I am sticking to a strict regiment from now on!!! With that: I've almost finished season 1 of The Good Wife.
I LOVE IT A LOT. I love the main cast - especially the women, who are so delightful to watch without this show being overstated about attempts to carry some kind of message about superiority or empowerment (though it does that but it's conveyed in a way I really like) I am always shocked by how ridiculously good Archie Punjabi is in this. British women with South Asian Subcontinental heritage REPRESEEEEENT! But seriously, I am tempted every time to re-watch Bend It Like Beckham so that I can listen to her say "innit"
