Dress Week - LBD (and book talk)



What would Dress Week be without the LBD?  I really love this dress - I've said it before, but I got it from Ann Taylor for $7.  I've definitely gotten my price per wear to under 50cents.

Anyway, it's Literary Junkies day.  Here are the questions and my answers:
  • What are you reading? Tell us about it!  I'm just a few chapters into This is Where I Leave You.  So far, I like it.  It seems to walk the fine line between funny and sad.
  • Library or bookstore? Library all the way!  My local library is awesome! I'm really excited about a few books that are coming out this fall, because I'm near the top of the wait list at the library - this means I will probably get them pretty soon after they are released, but I don't have to pay!    
  • What book(s) have you read and re-read several times?  I don't really reread books.  There are too many new ones to read, I don't want to waste time reading something when I already know what happens.  There are a few books I read as a kid that I don't remember at all and would like to read again, but they won't make it to the top of my list for awhile.  The only book I purposely read over and over again is the Bible.  
  • What is the first book that made you fall in love with reading?  No idea!  I have loved to read since before I can remember. 
  • Who's your favorite author? Tell us so we can binge-read!  I'm so bad at picking favorites!  A couple more recent favorites are Neil Gaiman and Rainbow Rowell.  They are very different, but both wonderful!  
Have you read anything good lately?

Also remember you can keep linking up your dress looks throughout the week!

  17. hi Andi! so I guess I haven't been over here in longer than I thought! I have to say this look is totally classy and flattering on you! you cannot go wrong with a topknot and LBD. this is a fun questionnaire, I'm with you, library all the way! it took me tooo long to get a Nashville Library card when I relocated, but now I use mine whenever I can. no reason to buy books that I can just borrow.

    ♥ perfectly Priya
