I just wanted to buy a nice jar since I'm going to do another memory jar this year, but after I couldn't find one I let myself browse the book section (I had to get something to write about!), and the rest was history. Anyway, enjoy!
I know I don't need these, and I know I especially didn't need both, but I just couldn't walk away from them. I love both travel mugs and polka dots far too much. They don't have any distinctive writing on them other than "Caution Contents Hot" so I couldn't find an exact match online, but I did find one in black with white polka dots that has the same sized polka dots (all the others I found had much smaller dots) and lid, so I just compared them to that.

After buying season eleven in a recent Sunday Savings post and enjoying it, I went and bought 1-4 on one of my days off (which is why they weren't in a Sunday Savings post), and ended up finishing them all quite quickly, so I thought I'd get some more while I was in Cash Converters today. At JB Hi-Fi each one of these are $19.98, but I got them for $3 each.

I am so happy with these finds! Oscar Wilde is such a revered writer, and I am yet to have read any of his work, so I'm very eager to start one of these. The Picture of Dorian Gray is on the Rory Gilmore Challenge too, so it's already very high up on my to-read-next list.

I've been meaning to pick up A Thousand Splendid Suns for a while, so today I decided to finally do it. I've also been interesting in reading something by Plato for sometime now, and I'm happy to start with The Last Days of Socrates as it is quite a short read, and I've heard a lot of good things about it.

I honestly don't know why I keep buying Nick Hornby books when the ones I've read really haven't wowed me at all, but I guess they're not terrible, and they're fairly easy reads. This one will probably be on the shelf for quite some time though because, as I said, I have a huge to-read-next pile at the moment. The Portrait of a Lady will probably be on the shelf for quite some time too, but I do have some other books by Henry James that I'd like to read sometime this year.
