the big to-do

I've been holding out on y'all, because I'm so excited I can barely breathe! Let's let the pictures speak for themselves...
And finally, me with my brand-new-to-me SP-15. John Barrett and I are picking it up tomorrow...and I can't wait!

more room on the shelf

I have many exciting (new!) things to tell you about, and many pictures to show you, but until my internet starts behaving itself, this will have to do.

These are the 106 books most often listed as 'unfinished' on LibraryThing. The rules are that you bold the ones you've read all the way to the end, underline the ones you read for "school", and star the ones you started but didn't finish.

I'm following ampersand duck on this one, and adding italic for those I've re-read.
Via ampersand duck, and many, many others before.

it's been a hard day's night...

Nothing to report, really. New books are in progress, mostly because my internet has been down this week, and my cell phone provider's towers went down today, so I've been catching up on everything but my internet presence and my hunt for a studio space.

And if you haven't seen A Hard Day's Night, truck over to your local hip video store, and watch it tonight. It makes me giggle!
