There is something just gorgeous about a good book...

isn't there?

I dream fondly of a day when I can lounge about and read undisturbed for several hours. I am currently re-reading a book called Quicksilver which is about vagabonds, courtesans, Puritans, alchemists, natural philosophers, and calculus.
It's actually quite good despite that incredibly awkward description.

I've also recently come into possession of the whole set of Tintin adventures. I've always loved them but my children had limited interest til the recent movie. Now I have a good excuse to own them all, yay!
