We went to the city this weekend because I wanted to see the decorations. Well, I was sorely disappointed. We only saw one outdoor Christmas tree. No garland. No lights. No decorations. It was disappointing. However, there were really cute adoptable cats and dogs in the windows of Macy's. That almost made up for the lack of general festiveness in the city.
As some of you may know, I collect signed first-editions on a small scale.
Here is my current wish list:
1. Thomas Pynchon, AGAINST THE DAY
2. A.S. Byatt, POSSESSION
3. William Goldman, PRINCESS BRIDE
4. John Irving, WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP
5. any Jimmy Carter book that I don't have
6. Bill Clinton, MY LIFE
