What does a paperback book cost you?

For me:
•about three tall peppermint white chocolate mochas from Starbucks

•a Sierra turkey sandwich from Panera Bread

•half a tank of gas

•one DVD from Target

•a pair of ballet flats from TJ Maxx

•a nail polish change at the salon

•eye shadow from Clinique

•one and a half movie tickets

This is a picture from my 20th birthday with the family.
Kelley gave me a great book, The Dive From Clausen's Pier.
I read this book on the way to meet Charlie in Amsterdam and on the train rides through Europe.

I have very fond memories of books I've read on special occasions.
I'm a werido I know...
but it gets worse!
Before I go on a big trip,
I specifically pick out my perfume and book that I will wear/read during that time
because I know I can always look back and, for certain, remember those two things.
For instance:

Europe Trip
Perfume: Magnolia Blossom (bath and body works)
Book: The Dive From Clausen's Pier

Honeymoon
Perfume: Wings
Book: The House of Spirits

Jamaica
Perfume: Coco Chanel Mademoiselle
Book: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society
