SRP End of June

Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, Gregory Maguire, 368 pages. For once, I liked a Maguire book.* In late May or early June, I read Girl with a Pearl Earring, so I couldn’t help but notice some similarities between the two books.

Rowan 10th Anniversary Oversize Booklet

Black/white photos, and featurettes about several designers (eg: Kaffe Fassett, Kim Hargreaves, Sasha Kagan, etc.).

Great guy sweater: “Men’s Herringbone Sweater” by Artwork (Jane and Patrick Gottelieb), page 19.

Summer Reading Program 2006 Early June

I found the SRP through Chris and signed up. My goal is to read 40 books by August 31. I’ve always been a voracious reader; Mom says I started reading when I was 3 years old. Then, I loved comic books (Archie and the gang, Uncle $crooge (my favorite) and the rest of the Disney [...]
