penguin classics

my books arrived and i am extremely happy to have them in my collection.  the covers are designed by coralie bickford-smith and are similar beautiful (go here to see individual images).  i first discovered ms. bickfork-smith back in august 2009 at design*sponge.  i had to have them, after hours of searching for the best price, and immediately pre-ordered them on amazon.  they finally arrived last thursday and they are beautiful.

the cover of jane eyre by charlotte bronte and the picture of dorian gray by oscar wilde are tied for my favorite.

my only question…when will the other set be available in the US?  i must have them to complete my collection.

i finished the first book in the ‘wicked’ series and started the second book a few weeks ago.  yes, the odd dreams stopped and now i am using my imagination to paint the scenes.  oz has become a dark, dark place and even the good witch is unable to make it glittery, happy, hopeful…i’m still in the early part of the book, so maybe it will get better.

last night i started reading ‘wicked’ by gregory maguire.  then i dreamed of a baby with sharp teeth and zombies.  definitely enjoying the book, not so much the dream.  i wonder if i will remember my dreams tonight.
