Well, sod it!
This picture? That's me drinking away my dumbness.
Do you ever do something so totally dumb that you dont know whether to keep it to yourself or tell others so you can have a good laugh about it? Lucky you, I'm of the latter camp. I'm a big Jane Green fan. For those of you who don't know, she's a UK-based chick-lit author. I'd read most all of her books and then I saw on a list somewhere a book titled "Spellbound". I searched high and low and could not find this book anywhere in the US. Fast forward to a few months ago and I saw it in a used bookstore. So of course I snatched it up immediately! I began reading it today and immediately thought to myself, "Self, this story sounds awfully familiar..." But, I rationalized that I'd probably read an excerpt from it in one of her other books (as this is pretty common practice to put a chapter or so at the end to juice you up...). However, the more I read, the more I was convinced that I had actually read this book in it's entirety. Keep in mind that this was after I had read nearly 7 chapters and roughly 100 pages. I get home, go to Jane Green's US website and lo and behold, what do you think to my wondering eyes did appear? The book was under a different title in the US and yes, I had read it already. Sometimes, I'm amazed at my stupid-dom.
