“With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?”

I actually bought this tote as a gift in one of the Litsy book swaps. 🙂

Snapped in Carpe Librum, an independent bookstore at 17th and L NW that closed last week because a new building is going up. Hoping it can reopen elsewhere in DC!

CarpeLibrumBookstoreArtGallery Wrong Carpe Librum. We're in Baltimore. 5y
schmia @CarpeLibrumBookstoreArtGallery Ah thanks -- I wasn't sure you were the same one, but figured it was worth a shot. I get up to Baltimore for work now and again and have heard tales of reading benches, but none of good bookstores to check out. So it's good to know y'all are there, too. 5y

Wbabdullah @jenniferw88 I have Ireland as one of my #passportlitsy reads. I was thinking of reading Oscar Wilde. Which is the better read in your opinion: The Importance of Being Earnest or The Picture of Dorian Gray? 5y
jenniferw88 @Wbabdullah I haven't read Dorian Gray but The Importance of Being Earnest is a shorter read, so I would suggest Earnest! 🤣 5y
Wbabdullah @jenniferw88 thank you!! 5y
revenge4porgy I‘ve read Dorian Gray. Never liked it. Was much more attracted to The Importance of Being Earnest. 5y

Wearing mismatched shades of black & reading my 2nd #litsypenpals letter from @ReadOrDieRachel . I read it 2nite on my way to get dinner with my husband's super-goth cousins, in town from upstate NY. We got vegan. Obviously.?

The bunny card is perfect & I love the Oscar Wilde magnet. My favorite quote of his? "There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written or badly written. That is all."??

readordierachel 😂 Awesome. That's a great quote! 5y
