Whadaya think?? Do you notice anything different...? (Haha! Of course you do!) I just thought it would be nice to freshen things up a bit & do some "Spring Cleaning," if you will, to good old PT.
I hope you all enjoy the new look. I know I certainly do! I'm really digging pink and grey lately... I think I'm planning on doing my bedroom in those colors too. (Random fact of the day, anyone? lol!) But if you have some suggestions for the decor, feel free to comment & let me hear them!!
In other random news, I am currently reading through Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. I cannot get over how completely amazing the writing is!! This is my first encounter with the great celebrated novelist, and to be honest, I was nervous at our first meeting. You might ask why, but I think my fear makes perfect sense when explained...
In any given list of famous works of literature, Dickens' name is certain to appear on the list. When I hear his works repeatedly referenced as some of the most amazing pieces of written art ever published, I immediately begin to think, "Just how sophisticated is this guy's writing? And what mysterious formula did he discover to craft his world-famous stories? How difficult is the reading?" But these questions are not the ones that cut me with anxiety. The question is, "Will I ever amount to a fraction of this magician's talent?"
(Mr. Charles Dickens)
So even this literary giant with the phenomenal talent had little hiccups & re-dos along the way. It's encouraging to see that even the best had their slow days and unique ways of trudging forward.
Needless to say, I am enjoying the book very much! So much, in fact, when I went to Half-Priced Books the other day, I went ahead and bought Oliver Twist to read later!! (And I also got Jane Austen's Emma & The Wind and the Willows by Kenneth Grahame.)
What authors have inspired you? And what books were you afraid to pick up because of reputation? Let me know in the comments!!
