Cree found this for us at the thrift store this weekend. It was the only thing we wanted to buy and there was a super long line...I'd say 50 ft or so. We were debating whether or not it was worth the wait. I'm so glad we did. I've been wanting a vintage penguin for a long time...ever since I read this book. I think it is so cute! Oh how I love books. Cree and I have a bookshelf wall piled high with books. We had a couple over to dinner once and they asked if we actually read the books we have or if we just like the way they look. Made me giggle a bit. Of course we read them! But we also like the way we look. It's my job to like books. Sometimes if we already have a copy of a book but find one with a great cover design, we'll just splurge and have two copies....sometimes three. Weird? I think not.
Also, just as a side note. Cree and i went to go see Waiting For Superman. It was fantastic. Wonderful. Delightful. Stupendous. The adjectives could go on and on. The best movie I've seen in a long while. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to talk about it for days after. I highly recommend it. Also, for every ticket you buy, you get to donate $15 to a school project of your choice. We still haven't decided where to give. There are so many wonderful projects. If anyone wants to see it...we'll go again.
