While I enjoy amassing all things bookish, this embroidery of my some of my all-time favorite books, given to me and made by my bestie, is my favorite. #bookishgoods #riotgrams

Today's #bookmail ! I've been wanting to read this ever since the 24in48 readathon, when @CherylDeFranceschi recommended it. I had a terrible time finding a copy (had to get it through inter library loan), read enough to know I had to have my own copy, then finally found one I could afford from Half Price Books' online site. It arrived today 😄

CherylDeFranceschi Squee!! Savor the language slowly! I hope you love it! 3y
SharonGoforth @CherylDeFranceschi I 'm pretty sure I will-he had me at "This was not the doo-dah South..." I plan to savor this with dictionary in hand ? 3y
CherylDeFranceschi @SharonGoforth Just be aware that he makes up words, too! 3y
SharonGoforth @CherylDeFranceschi Aha! Thanks for the heads up😊. I haven't had to look anything up yet because I've been able to get the jist from the sentences, but I thought one might come in handy 😊 3y
CherylDeFranceschi It does later on. 3y

#HonestBookTitle #24in48 #readathon. This is my favorite book in the world. Within its pages you will find every type of prose that exists. You will find a chapter called "The Misogynist's Library" that is simply a list of books in his library. Amazing books. Hilarious books. And so many more awesome and incredible linguistic tricks. But, it would be more aptly named "Boy Meets Girl, Boy Gets Girl, Boy Loses Girl"
Read this book!

SharonGoforth I'm going to have to find this... 3y
CherylDeFranceschi @SharonGoforth it's imperative! The best thing ever! 3y
