A Bit Bookish

The name's Luna.
24/Los Angeles/wannabe blogger & researcher
Just another freak in the Freak Kingdom.
A place for me to ramble about books I love... also probably the only blog I'll ever have that will keep its theme. I don't want my page to be a mess so I'm only going to shelve books starting with what I've read in the past year.
I'm not always eloquent, and I'm certainly not pretentious. I am just a huge nerd who lurks in used bookstores and likes to read and do research for fun.
Geeks unite.

School Books


Picked up my books for Cultural Anthropology at the school bookstore yesterday. I usually try to avoid buying from the school- they rob me enough as it is, and new books are usually half the price online. But I was desperate- I needed these for today, and it was only about a $10 difference, so eh. Coulda been worse. 

Started First Fieldwork today (different cover), so far it's semi-interesting. I'll be starting In Search of Respect this evening after work- I'm looking forward to that one a lot.
I love old books, but new books just feel and smell amazing. I just want to carry around In Search of Respect all day because it feels so good in my hands. 

Coolest news- they had my English book at the public library! This is one I may want for my collection, but since I'm short on money as always I'm going to keep this checked out for as long as I can. Hopefully I can get the full 9 weeks out of it!

Still have to order my book for my African Americans in History class, which I suppose I'll do right now. 

I also found these beautiful fancy post-its at work for a couple bucks- so looking forward to using them to decorate my planner this week! Need some fall-colored washi desperately, but that'll have to wait a while. 


It's been a very hectic few days getting used to going to school while working, but through caffeine all is possible.
