I'm typing this post while listening to the Overture from the musical Annie. What does this have to do with Books for America? I'll tell you:
I went to Books for America this afternoon to look for a book on knitting. I've been window-shopping for a book with good patterns but reluctant to spend $20-$25 when I'm unemployed and any project in the book is going to require paying for materials. They had a few options--not the book I saw on Tuesday that I really wanted, but beggars can't be choosers!--and as I was paying and arranging for them to come pick up the donations from the book drive in my apartment building, lo and behold the Annie cast recording!
Anyway, Annie has always been one of my favorite musicals (though the scene in the movie where Annie climbs the railroad bridge while being chased by Rooster still makes me nervous) and it's great to be able to listen to it while blogging and knitting.
So all in all, a good day at Books for America. $7 for 16 sweater patterns and a favorite CD. Check it out yourself if you're in DC!
