Saturday Snapshot: One Last Christmas Gift


...or possibly an early Valentine? These lovely greyhound bookends, on back order during the holiday season, arrived Thursday. Somebody knows me very well!

  1. Those are beautiful!

    Maybe we should do a read-along of the Bronte bio. It's been gathering dust in my family room for too long. The Millay bio is really good.

    1. Amy - I just started Savage Beauty last night, but might be up for a slow read-along of the Bronte bio when I'm done :)

    4. I've had good luck breaking down big books into little weekly sections. When you're done with SB, ping me on Twitter, and let's see if we can't figure out a way to set reasonable goals.

  2. Those are really great! I've been looking for a set of bookends for a while, but haven't able to find any that fit me - I wish someone would send me a set to make my mind up for me!

  12. I have a pair of owl bookends in white that my family gave me upon the occasion of the launching of my first book. Your bookends are very attractive.
