Dog by Juliet Clutton-Brock


Yeah, well, I like dogs a lot. The writing (or the Swedish translation), especially the captions, are quite funny at times, almost like a kid did the work.

Note the mistake on the cover.

Chicken with Plums by Marjane Satrapi


Marjane Satrapi is great.


Merci à J.

Alban - popmuffa för små hundar by Barbro Lindgren


Swedish children's book from 1972 that I used to love as a kid. Alban is a dog with one ear hanging who wants to die when his brother impresses their common love interest Melitta by dancing on one hind leg.

A million thanks to the wonderful ladies at the Library who helped me find it!

Mostly reading Ted Hughes, though.

Was the cloud of you

I'd Rather Be Reading


I sometimes forget that I am collecting tote bags from museums, libraries and such; probably because I've only got 4 as of yet. Arboga Stadsbibliotek, the Ghibli Museum shop Mama Aiuto, Antarctic base Port Lockroy and the little Penguin above that I originally used as my set bag for film shoots. Recently J was this close to get me one from a Kafka museum in Prague, but as he turned his back some woman got the last one. Thing is though, not to actually be at the tote bag site oneself is probably cheating.
