“Finished [the book] already?”

“Oh I couldn’t put it down! Got anything new?”

(I saw Beauty and the Beast today, and honestly, didn’t feel as much of the Disney magic as I wanted to. However…it doesn’t stop inspiration from hitting!)

The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath

It took three tries, but I finally own the Harper Perennial Olive Edition of The Bell Jar. Four months ago I ordered it from Abebooks, but it was lost in the mail. Two months ago I *thought* I ordered it from Thriftbooks, but when it arrived, it was a different edition. Yesterday it arrived in all its Olive Edition glory! Welcome home, and meet your new friends. 😊
