Had to stop and take a picture of this bookish art installation at the LAX airport. Spotted on the long walk from the plane through customs.

I like trains, but I don't need to see them from orbit 🚂☢😳

(Michael Crichton tended to suffer from #uglybookcovers syndrome anyway)

I dunno... parkour and horseback riding? Sherlock isn't much of a sports fan - his favorite is "shot put some treats in my mouth, Daddy" #funphotofriday #thebookishferrets #petsofLitsy
