reading, listening, wanting

I am reading this now. I have been dying to forever, and a few weekends ago I found it for $3 at Big Lots.
Man I love that store.
So far it is precious and whimisical and I cannot wait to get further in. In fact I would like to spend today wrapped in my favorite blanket, reading this book. But alas, I must be a productive citizen of society instead.

This book I just started on my Kindle for iPhone. There are tons of free books on there - classics and  works that are now in the public domain.
I kind of feel like I need to get caught up on classics before I need to start spending money to download new books, so this is where I am starting.
Have you read this? What did you think?

Since I fell in love with the Masterpiece Series last year I have been wanting to read this book.
I recently found the best app for my phone that allowes me to listen to hundreds (maybe thousands?) of great audio books read by volunteers at Librivox.
So far the ladies of Cranford have joined me as I have folded laundry, cleaned the kitchen, cooked dinner and sorted through stacks of books in the boys room.

This is one of those books I always head for when I go to the bookstore.
I haven't yet found the pennies to pay for my own copy. Coffee table books are hard to justify, so I am bidding my time for that perfect combination of timing, sale price and gift card.

Since I have absolutely adored Tessa's other book Falling Cloudberries so much, I am anxious to get the rest of her collection.
The chapters in this book are divided up by color.
Can you imagine anything more well suited for me?
 And those shoes on the cover. I want those shoes.
So that is what I am reading, listening to and wanting to read.
What about you?
