A Willful Woman…

Thoughts about books from a romance addict.

Move Along, Nothing to See Here

on November 3, 2020

This post is entirely a little joke for https://habitrpgbooklists.wordpress.com/author/faranae/ as a comment on their post, https://habitrpgbooklists.wordpress.com/2020/11/02/a-book-involving-an-unpopular-profession/.

(And how delightful that with this forced block editing, I don’t know how to do a proper link anymore! But at least I somehow managed to insert the media.)

The cover of the board book Can't Sleep, showing a painting of a sleeping full moon.

A picture book I adore.

The same cover, with red sticker dots over the eyes.

Our copy of the book, with surgery by my child that she was extremely proud of.

    Your child’s “improvement” of that book makes me think she’s a Shaun Tan fan… It’s going to haunt my dreams now…

    P.S. My pronouns are they/them or ze/zer! I really should make a bio on WordPress, huh? ^^;;;

      Argh! Very sorry, I will correct the post. I think I actually knew that but for some reason my brain often seems to default to she for people. I keep she-ing my daughter’s therapist too.

      I forgot to mention, originally I removed the stickers and she was very upset and I had to buy a whole new package of stickers so she could redo it!

      • faranae says:

        No worries, I checked my WP and Habit profiles and realized I’ve never put pronouns on either, so it’s not like I made it easy for you!

        And she was rightfully upset. I mean, she’d created art! Did the rest of the stickers end up anywhere equally distressing?

    I don’t specifically remember, though I wouldn’t be surprised. Her art was all over the house for some years. 🙂

    She also enjoyed googly eyes some time later, though I guess never wanted to improve on her original work.

Miss Bates Reads Romance

“Miss Bates…had never boasted either beauty or cleverness. Her youth had passed without distinction, and her middle of life was devoted to the care of a failing mother, and the endeavour to make a small income go as far as possible. And yet she was a happy woman..." Emma, Jane Austen
