of books and candles


marley and me.
I've been dying to read this book for a long time. I'm a definitely a dog person {as opposed to a cat person}, and the movie is a favorite of mine. Imagine my excitement when I found a special hard copy at a book sale for $1. Yes, one buck. 
I've devoted pretty much this entire Thursday afternoon to reading, something I don't normally do. I'm already halfway through it.

If you know me, you know I love anything little. Tiny things. Life's minuscules. I couldn't resist this little Spanish dictionary. I hit a bargain on this one as well. $1. Who knows? It might even prove to be handy for school.

To go along with a good book, I love the smell of a burning candle. Taking this photo, I got just a tad bit too close to the flame. My lens fogged up which worried me. Okay, I freaked out. This may be the first and last attempt at a candle picture.

  1. hey girl! I added you on facebook (which is totally creepy, but not really). On old Inkwell comments it has your first name, and your sister used to have your last name on her blogger profile. go ahead and feel free to decline, but I just wanted to let you know that was me :) and you don't have to publish this comment if you don't want to! :)

  2. Those are 2 pretty sensational deals : ) So happy for you.

    Your camera can take more than you think : ) don't worry about a little lens fog. Trust me. It's just like babies : ) People treat them so daintily...maybe too protective.

  3. I wish I could find bargains like that. I've not read that book yet, I enjoyed the film like you, and have also wanted to read the book, but I think I'll wait until I bargain like you. I bet I'll be waiting a long time. lol.
    Let us know what you think of the book once you've finished. Will it be better than the movie? (more than likely) but still I'm curious to find out your opinion.

  4. I loved the movie Marley and me. Let me know if the book is as good as the movie! & great pictures! I also love the smell of a burning candle. I always have one lit. haha

    My life right now

  5. I read M&M a few years ago and loved it! I cried and cried. Hope you enjoy the rest!


your comments make my day. really.
