Today’s library haul. 

This is actually a huge problem for me. Because I check out a pile like this, because I WANTTHEMALL at once, but then I can’t pick one to start with, or I get busy, and I renew them as many times as I can, just to return them in shame, having not read more than maybe two. Does anyone else have this problem?

In any case, I started with Equilateral. I hope I can get through them all this time.

Oh, to be sure! It is always incomprehensible to a man that a woman should ever refuse an offer of marriage. A man always imagines a woman to be ready for anybody who asks her.

Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.
