Tomorrow I turn 24. Between celebratory mid-week drinks at Eastern Standard, last night’s surprise party at Lolita, and this morning’s breakfast at Deep Ellum, you could say my friends have been spoiling me. Just a little bit.
But let’s talk about books. Yesterday was a Penguin delivery day. My will power died when I saw the latest additions to the Penguin Threads series, which were released at the end of April. Art director Paul Buckley commissioned yet another brilliant artist (Rachell Sumpter) to embroider the cover designs of The Wind in the Willows, Little Women, and the Wizard of Oz. Since the latter two titles are among my all-time favorite classics, I needed them. (I use the term “need” loosely but you know what I mean.)
