|Old-fashioned bookstore: if only we had one in town.|
Now, I must admit, in my hometown (unlike here) indie booksellers are magnanimous and business-like. You can buy anything you want: remaindered editions of Martha Gellhorn, small-press books, the latest Indie Reads books, and marijuana (oops, I made up that last part). You can buy scrabble dictionaries, The Weird Sisters, Herodotus, or Ouida's Moths. You can order books.
We wished we had some gummy bears...
Tonight I made root vegetable soup to protect us from the cold. You throw in any root vegetables you want...turnips, carrots, parsnips, potatoes...and also some rice, and then cook in broth for 30 minutes. Then you saute some onions and throw them in for 10 minutes. Then you add some egg mixed with lemon at the last minute...and then you eat.
And now back to Kristin Lavransdatter. Really, I like this much more than The Master of Hestviken.
