Look What I Got in the Mail

Hardbound copies of One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez to ease my mourning. It has been a while since I read the book — I didn’t remember it being so big and long!

Thank you Lady Ryann!

    YAY!!!! I was worried it was lost. The post office was a zoo that day I swear they sent me to the back of the line for every little thing. You need a box. A different box. More tape. Do you want to put some padding in there?
    The card has a mouse on it! I had to send it XD.Glad you like it! <3

        I read that as "worth a penny". I was like dang, devalue much lol?

    It’s a great book. I wish I had a bit more time with it before I had to return it to the library. Maybe I’ll get a physical copy (or on my Kindle when I get desperate).

      You could probably find an old used paperback pretty cheap.
