The Wizard Of Oz in San Clemente




I've been working away on the photos of a super rad family I met in San Clemente a few weeks ago—and as I was finishing up I remembered these little gems I found there.


I hadn't been to San Clemente before so I figured I should go down early to see the lay of the land. While walking around the charming little beach town I found a used bookstore, Village Books, where the largest, fluffiest cat named Harry stares down every person that walks in the door. While browsing through the little shop I scored the cutest copy of The Wizard Of Oz I ever did see!!! I also nabbed The Plague and Sonnets From The Portuguese because they were like two dollars and the best colors/textures EVER.


Who said that thing about judging a book by its cover? I don't believe them and neither does Harry.


On a different note, but still related to books, Jason and I are reading The Three Musketeers together right now (like I read out loud to him while he does his treatments and he reads to me while I brush my teeth/wash my face and get ready for bed). He's waaaaaay into it. Sometimes we got to sleep around 1:30 because somebody can't put the book away until we've finished the chapter. Anyway—I didn't know I would be such a fan! But it's seriously one of my fave books ever—totally recommend it next time you're pining for a classic.

What's with the 3 Musketeer's revival? I don't know if it's the movies I've seen of it or the candy bar that has always made me avoid that book. I guess I'll have to check it out.
