I'm Mad About...

So last night I finished reading Pride and Prejudice. My book group met on Tuesday to discuss it, so I'm only a few days late. (Much better than our previous book, which I didn't even start reading until after the book group met!) Plus, I already knew the ending, so it's not like anyone could spoil it for me. But the whole time I was reading it, I kept conflating two different movie versions and picturing Keira Knightley as Elizabeth and Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy. I know he's a bit old for her (or she's a bit young for him), but I'd totally go see that movie.

Here are some things that caught my eye this week:
Selfridges via Condé Nast Traveler
  • British bookworms rejoice (at least temporarily): Selfridges London has opened a pop-up library of sorts on the ground floor of the department store to express solidarity with librarians as public spending cuts threaten libraries.  
  • Are you as inspired by the William Morris Project over at Pancakes & French Fries as I am?
  • Seriously, why did it never occur to me to start a blog about Trader Joe's?
  • All you Bay Area Eames fans, Zinc Details will host a showing of Eames: The Architect and the Painter on Wednesday. I watched it last weekend and highly recommend it.


  1. Keira and Colin? I'd TOTALLY go see that movie!

    1. Wouldn't that be awesome? I have a bit of a crush on both of them ;-)

  2. It's is pretty amazing. Too bad it's only temporary.


I love hearing from you!
