  • 100 demons bylynda barry

    Is that "Quotations" book supposed to be a shelf down, or is it navy?

  10. chotda 69 months ago | reply

    (laughing) i like that you're looking! it's navy. but it has moved, as i'm constantly rearranging them. have you seen the latest photographed incarnation? it has actually changed from that.

    innocentcharmer, i haven't read them in awhile, but i recall them being very funny. possibly thinly veiled autobiographies? combined with standard rom com elements.
