One of the things I miss most about catching the bus everywhere is the time I’d spend at the bookstore in between my two buses. While I certainly don’t regret that it takes a fraction of the time to get around now, I do miss my browsing.
Lucky for me, though, my sister now catches the bus to and from tafe, and she often calls me to let me know of book sales or any other ‘hey guess what I just find’ news of note. Last night this call resulted in her coming home with goodies for me, two books that she knew were on my wishlist and she called to tell me about.
John Green’s Looking for Alaska, which I read and loved last year, and his latest book, Paper Towns, which I haven’t read yet, but am very much looking forward to. Very happy surprise!
