Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

What do I WANT NOW? This Wednesday... (2)

I've neglected to do this for the last two Wednesday's so I think I need to catch up. I do love books and there is always one that I would like to have so I should just tell you, right? So, here is three of the books I've been craving for the last three Weds. including today:

  1. Weds. 09/02/09 ~ During this week, I had been wondering about Pulitzer Prize winning books so I've been looking at different titles and authors. It's been interesting to discover this interest where it was peaked as little known tidbits by Mr. Hamlicar Barca were being left in comments at 5-squared, a book review blog I'm a part of. I happened upon a Pulitzer Prize winning book for this year, a book called Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout, at Border's bookstore. That's what I wanted on this Weds.
  2. Weds. 09/09/09 ~ Once again, I found myself perusing the books at the bookstore and this time I was browsing the craft books section when I came upon a book that made my creative heart soar called The Rubber Stamper's Bible by Francoise Read. It was filled to the brim with color, ink, rubber stamping techniques I knew and new ones I haven't tried yet so it was fun to be mesmerized by it for a little while. That's what I wanted on this Weds.
  3. Weds. 09/16/09 ~ Ever since a few weeks ago when I was able to see "Julie and Julia" at the movies, I can't help it, I've been thinking about France and French food ever since so I think it's a tie this time in the books I want based on either I actually want to try some of the recipes in Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume One by Julia Child or just to read about her life and get to know more about her in My Life in France by Julia Child and Alex Prud'Homme. So, I think that's what I'd like to dream about wanting this Weds.
It was enlightening for me to think about books for awhile and what I may wish to have without actually buying. Thanks, as always, for letting me indulge. Now, you can think about what is it that you'd like this Weds.?

OH GOD now I'm starving!! All that talk about French food YUM! (It probably doesn't help that I'm watching TOP CHEIF on Bravo :P)

But all those books sound so good!! I have a secret - I've wanted to start and dabble in calligraphy! But since I've had no job I could afford to buy things. I've also wanted to dabble in the waxes - like the ones they used to seal letters with! I think that'd be so cool to start again!! AHH!!

AND when I was @ B&N I was in the craft section and thought of you :)

(I also want to work more with cameras)

Hahaha, ok I'm going to stop now. I've revealed far too much and the tabloids will be nocking on down your blog :)

Julie, How did you like that movie, Julie and Julia?

Julie September 17, 2009 at 4:30 PM  

Margo - I do love to talk about food. I took a calligraphy class before but I still haven't practiced enough to be considered good.
I'd like to try the wax seals too. Very cool!
I need a better camera! -Someday...
Don't worry, I don't really think those tabloids will be knocking on this tiny blog. ;)

Bonnie - I really did like the movie Julie and Julia. It's not a perfect movie but satisfying in a mouth-watering way. Definitely, for those who love food! ;)
