Bed of Books

Today is cleaning day. Why, you ask?  Well I shall tell you!  Erin will be here in one week!!!!!  Woooooot!!!!   So I am getting my shit in order to ensure we can maximize the time she's here (also my room is a crazy, freaky mess to the point where I am sure my mom in Atlanta is losing sleep over it).  I'm rocking out to some party tunes and trying to get things done in time to go to the ultimate Sunday party destination.  The Church.  Today is a toga party and that sound like a fucking good time!  Plus it's on my 30/30 list.  Got to get this stuff sorted first though.  But just so you don't think I am all party and no study I will say that I am cleaning all the crap off my bed and amongst the many things piled on it (again, don't tell my mom this, please) are the following books:

  • Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris (I love this book so much!)
  • The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell (book club book for the 28th that I haven't started in a real way yet.  Shit.  I have to crank that puppy out!!) 
  • The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery (read this on our Cornwall extravaganza
  • 1000 Things to do in London by Time Out
  • The Kindness of Strangers by Kate Adie (she's amazing!) 
  • British Maps and Map-Makers by Edward Lynam (I love maps.  I carry my A to Z pretty much everywhere and have maps on my wall marking where I've been - which I just realized I have never posted about but will now...) 
  • 2011 Road Atlas: Britain - again from the Cornwall trip
  • English History made Brief, Irreverent, and Pleasurable by Lacey Baldwin Smith
