This week, I did the unthinkable: I paid full price for a brand new, hardcover book. So, what prompted this extravagant spending? Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games)!

And, yes, I've already finished it. (Review to follow.)

I also bought Looking for Alaska by John Green, Portrait of an Unknown Woman by Vanora Bennett, and my next book club book, The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery.

To put you in the mood for a lazy Labor Day weekend (here in the US, at least), I thought I'd share this lovely "life imitating art" image of one of my favorite paintings:

The painting is Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte (Un dimanche après-midi à l’Ile de la Grande Jatte) by Georges Seurat (1884-1886). Find more "life imitating art" photos at Buzz feed.

  1. That's unusual for me too, and I did the same thing for the same book!
