I just found two books that I need to own. Now. I am in love.

Here is the first: What It Is, by Lynda Barry. It is a crazy, scrapbooky, kooky poetic collage of a memoir, and promises to be an adventure to read. Maybe I just regressed 15 years, but this is the book that will get me out of any funk I'm in.

And numero dos is called The Principles of Uncertainty, by Maira Kalman. Honestly, I fell in love with the cover first, but after reading the reviews, I was sold.

I'd buy them both online now, but since I'm so close to moving, I might at well wait till I'm back up on campus and visit a bookstore, or go into the city and find one this weekend. That way I can at least get some use out of the coupons I keep getting e-mailed to me from Border's.

(I've also added both to my Amazon wishlist, for those that really care about me. *sniff*)

(Speaking of the wishlist, this Baker's Edge Brownie pan is on there, and I am so unbelievably excited that such a product exists. Buy it for me, and you will earn my undying love, loyalty, and unlimited brownies.)
