He watched the smoke curl from his mouth. Feeling for an ashtray, he found a book at the side of the bed. 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being,' spine creased at the 'erotic' bits." ---page 9
because tv let me down tonight (a painful mavericks loss + american idol being really bad this year + tivo not recording the Grey's Anatomy finale - which ironically might have made the night not a complete television watching fail) i turned it off.
Instead, i grabbed the book amazon delivered on my doorstep this afternoon, filled a tub with bubbles and began reading until the bubbles dissolved.
the first chapter alone was a win and i can't wait to keep reading about dex and em (thank-you M for getting me on board before the film).
i giggled because Nicholls description of the girl? is not only the kind of way i wish to always be seen but it also made me blush.
and so i called my husband into the bathroom and read out loud that description knowing he would get it.
if you came over, i'd show you my copy of said book mentioned-- the unbearable lightness of being which i actually just finished reading-- sitting on my night table, pages creased and all.
