Freshly made cinnamon buns... even if they take five hours to make from scratch.
Strong, dark coffee.
The smell of new books.
Making notes throughout my books... a book well-loved is one that appears destroyed.
Apples in September.
I guess it's a good thing I started university this week. Class attending, homework completing, volunteering at the archives, baking, and of course, reading with a strong cup of coffee on hand has now become part of my schedule. Though they're not as thrilling as my regular books, I do have around $300 worth of texts to add to my bookshelf as of yesterday. At least I'll have that new-book smell, a potential muse for blogging, and a whole new selection of material to tattoo with coffee-ring stains.
Oh, and my earlier goal... the 'finish reading Tatiana De Rosnay's Sarah's Key by Tuesday, 7 September 2010' goal... failed miserably. But I am almost done! Probably by the time I finish writing this I could be done reading the book, but a lady has her priorities. Writing before reading, right?
