Hello Peoples! Shanti and I are apart right now so this post is in the form of a letter.
I wonder what it’s like in Melbourne. We got to Auckland this morning, technically. I fell asleep at 5 and woke up at 11, so I’m super tired.
But I know I’m not the thing that matters, right? What matters is of course all the wonderful books I left for you. Isn’t it awesome that you could order them in India and here I am to pick them up? You’ve gotta be a bit grateful.
When I saw your pile of ordered books, I was cowed. There were 11 and they were SO HEAVY. Honestly! (btw, we do own A Suitable Boy. I really was not keen on carrying that one. You can read it some other time) I was the one biking around carrying them. I dropped some in the middle of the car park on the way back, but it’s fine. *brushes off clumsiness casually*
Much as I hate to admit it, you’ve got good taste. Look at these covers!!!!!
I already read Ms. Marvel and it is excellent. Considering it’s my first comic book that I actually finished, I was confused at times, but I did end up really liking it.
We must be twins, sis. (I never call you sis in real life) ‘Cause guess what I did while we were
stuck in sydney airport? (to clarify, different terminals. Also, we were there like 11.5 hours. So we won on the boring miserableness.) That’s right. I bought a book. I saw some review somewhere and read a few chapters at the shop. (The kobos were buried in our carry on luggage. *le sigh*) Luckily, we didn’t buy the same book *swoons with relief, maiden-like*. I brought it with me, but I believe it’d be a wonderful addition to our bookshelf. You can read it when we get back.
While you’re missing me (because who wouldn’t), enjoy those lovely books
I lugged around for you and rescued from puddles in car parks. AND THAT’S AN ORDER.
