I’m pretty sure I could use Harry Potter for every single one of these challenges this month, but I’m trying really hard to save you the monotony. Hazard of rereading them, I guess. I AM obsessed with them.
Instead, I’ll pull out my new old copy of The Great Gatsby. After seeing the movie, I became obsessed with finding a copy for my own library. I thought it would be easy to find at a used bookstore, but apparently, everyone else had the same idea as I did. All of the copies I found were either completely ratty, or written in and highlighted all over–a huge pet peeve of mine.
It took me until we reached Dallas to finally find this almost perfect copy. Now I can rest a little easier with Fitzgerald on my shelves. Ok, not really. There’s way too many greats left to collect.
