crossesandguns: cain with a syringe full of poison (Default)
Sometimes, I think maybe I should spend my money on something else, other than books. But then something whispers, "What else is there besides books?", and I promptly forget I even thought of that until my next bout with self-doubt.

I got my paycheck the other day, and proceeded to spend it in the most rewarding way possible - in a bookstore! I've been thinking about buying Tolkien for a while now (and returning the LoTR I borrowed to its rightful owner), but I couldn't decide between a) a box set of The Hobbit + separate books of the trilogy, or b) The Hobbit (illustrated by Alan Lee) and a single volume edition LoTR.

I mean, a) is a box set, and box sets are pretty, they look real nice together, but b) has ALAN LEE ILLUSTRATIONS and LoTR in a single volume as Tolkien wanted it to be.

Ah, yes, I was leaning towards the latter. I have The Hobbit as illustrated by Alan Lee now and it's really very pretty!!

Also picked up Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietschze. That day was a really good day, because my copy of The Sound of Music was finally returned! Now my rainy days will be filled with music and joy againnnnn~
