Every once in a while, I get this incredible urge to stock up on books. I used to be a heavy reader when I was younger, but as high school hit I seemed to read less and less. From reading a chapter every night, I'm now just reading online. Perhaps the transition from tangible reading materials to the online world of newspaper websites and blogs isn't a bad thing. Maybe I'm reading the same amount, but why does it feel like I'm reading less? Probably because I'm not reading books.
And thus, my mission today (Tues) is to go on an epic bike ride around the city, visiting book stores (like Swipes, and The Beguiling -- thanks Hil) to find a book to scratch this persistent itch I have. The only problem is choosing a book, but if I leave early enough, I'll have all day to find one before attending the TIFF Volunteer Recruitment thingy. Oh, and maybe go to the library and pay off my giant fine--a result from last summer's itch. *sigh*
That is something I will definitely blog about this year, and perhaps a future post will include memories from recent years of volunteering at TIFF.
Speaking of films, can anyone recommend the Julia/Julie book, that is now a movie coming out in August that I really want to see! How funny it's a book revolving around cooking and a blog.
Off I go!
