Underlined passage, Crossing the Mangrove by Maryse Condé.

Found in the dictionary.

Let the book remain open at all times.

I approve.


More Wednesday whimsy!

A fun, rare find from our stacks: Quadrupeds of America. Published by Clark, Austin & Smith, New York, 1860.

From the appropriately titled Tom Thumb Series, as this little book measures only 2.5” x 3.25”.

Hi baby,

Even tho I just saw you two weeks ago, it seems like it’s been forever! I missed you a lot & I was thinking about you the whole time in Mexico.

xoxo, David
