Books. And a question.

Here are some things about books.

They are good.

They smell good.

They are good for reading.

They look good on shelves.

Books are good goodness.


Here are some books I like right now.































I finished this whole series. Now I miss it.



I got this one for my birthday- by Em and Steph, and it is so inspiring!!!!!




















So I'm married to a comic book fan. It's all good. Call us what you will, but this book is amazing. It will forever change the way you see not only comics, but art of any kind, and I sincerely think it is a must read for scrapbookers- in a sense scrapbooking is a form of sequential art. It is absolutely brilliant. Bogglingly so.





















And finally, one of Bill's more consuming projects....
Seriously, this is worth looking at.

So to end with a question that's been presented to me this week.
"What do you want for Valentine's Day?"

Any help?
What do I want for V day?
And think BUDGET.

Hmmmm...you want a small gift certificate to the craft store. No more than $10. Cause it is not about the money.

OR

Have him make you dinner and get a movie.

Ok, I am TOTALLY DIGGING the GUSB. That rocks.

I concur- books are awesome. :) I love having piles of them around my house... they are comforting to me.

Ok, my first thought is (for V-day) that you need some flowers. Like, Heidi Swapp flowers, prima flowers.... nothing says Valentines like a dozen beautiful flowers. ;)

Carrie K said...

Oh how I love that you smell books!!! Everyone thinks Im crazy...now I feel better knowing Im not the only one! Book lovers RULE!!

VDay gift? A HUGE bookstore giftcard and a full free DAY to shop for HOURS!!

steph said...

you're such a fab little chickie!! ;-)

Bev said...

I Love my CardArt book!!! One of the best purchases I made this year.
As to V Day... my DH is usually in charge of dinner (usually greek take out and we set up a romantic table in the bedroom with flowers etc., a nice bottle of vino and OH - no kids!!!)Maybe some nice Heidi S flowers floating in some stemware would do well.

Your DHs project is awesome. cant wait to read more.

Wasn't allowed to put comment on Bill's blogsite, Sarah. Could you pass this on:
WHooooeeeeee, this is QUITE the project, Bill. I am SO impressed!! Good on you! I enjoyed just flicking into the dates and years and seeing how it all came together. THANK you for doing this, and I shall look forward to the gradual progression.
WELL DONE,

I miss Josephine too! I think highest praise of a book is when you don't want it to end, even when you want to see things resolved. And you are so very booky.
Love ya!

OR...

dinner out?
date night?

Herobill said...

Thanks for the Blog-love, y'all!

I got the site re-tooled last night, and added two new posts. It should be easier to navigate now and to find the comments page.

So genuinely honored I made my wife's top four of the week! :)

Bec said...

Erin said...

how i miss reading books since i've become so involved with scrapping!
this is making me think i need to go get me a good back!

Herobill said...

Okay... if I've been paying attention, then my shopping possibilities include:

craft certificate, groceries & cooking ingredients, new DVD, a large shrubbery (no herring), crumby whipped ice cream, picnic-basket-in-the-trunk with very-little-gas-in-the-tank, pretty vegetation, "stemware", (dictionary), giftcard, munchies & gaga, Michael's isle 12, babysitting, body oil, and maybe somebody else to rub it on her... wait, scratch that last one!

Okay, y'all are giving me lots of options... THHAAAAAANKS! :)

No pressure now, right? (Especially since I know she's gonna blog whatever I come up with now!) Tick, tick, tick...

Herobill said...

Oh yeah, and books, books, books, books, books, books, books, Ahhh (Sniff)... and books.

(I wish I could smell.)
