It’s the big 22 this year. I really will feel like a proper grownup. It’s from here on that I start dreading future birthdays and worrying that people wouldn’t lament “Oh that’s no age!” if they found out I’d died. Okay, maybe I’m a little forward thinking, but being an adult is scary. I don’t get any younger?! How can that be right?
That said, the present that has caught my eye this year makes me positively blue-rinse material. Most girls about to turn 22 are probably asking for Jimmy Choos or shotglasses or new boobs, or whatever it is you cool people ask for. Me?
Yep. It’s like Trivial Pursuit but about books. And it’s very pretty.
After having come second in this week’s #Twubquiz after I only answered about 2 questions right for my team, I feel remarkably insecure about my braincells. I need an ego boost. Enter: The Great Penguin Bookchase. It’s like entering a quiz you wrote the questions for – I can’t possibly go wrong. I might even get like 4 right.
I just love books. I probably haven’t read even half the ‘classics’ that everyone else in the world seems to have read, but at least it’s a quiz I’d enjoy even when I got the answers wrong! I know this whole idea makes me seem as trendy as a bookcase, but I guess I don’t fit in with the norm on any level. Still: buy me it, please.
