Do the dance of books!

Been meaning to do this: today I got myself to Mom and Dad's place in Dundee and went book-hunting. I wanted to retrieve more books for my current "read it/decide to keep it or not/ sell, donate or give away what I won't keep" pattern.

Books are in various bags and a small box, and clean laundry is here, too, because it's cheaper to do three loads of laundry there than with the "laundry token"-taking machines in my apartment's basement. More clean stuff and more reading!

    I've been sad today. It has been easy to think of sad things, and I've been thinking of them while not doing much else. Trying to think of happy…
