Total # of books for the year: 47. The Boyfriend and I finished Downton Abbey, but it was also a rough week for me. It was bad enough that I had to put down all of my books, except for Bookplate Special, and pick up The Princess Bride. I just couldn’t handle reading anything that would hit my emotional buttons the way Mockingjay and Primary Inversion had been. Luckily, the weekend was good and I started coming out of my funk. The Boyfriend and I went with some friends to see the new Star Trek movie, and we also decided to exchange our 3rd anniversary presents a little early instead of waiting for September 1st. I got him the hardcover edition of The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher. I wish I could have afforded to get him something more, but he was thrilled and that’s what counts. He surprised me with a Sony Walkman audio player. I’ve been wanting a replacement for my very old and craptastic Zune ever since Microsoft stopped supporting it, and not long after that, it stopped holding a charge for more than an hour or so.
