This picturesque statue is located outside the public library in Cape May Court House, NJ. It is so evocative for me of childhood summers spent reading for hours without interruption and charting the books that have been read on an official list kept by the children's librarian.
I am starting my summer reading off this year with a reread of "Pride and Prejudice." In anticipation of my trip to the library to get the book I also decided to dress for the occasion.
The socks are from Modcloth,
and the shirt is from Etsy. It has a quote from "Pride and Prejudice" on it.
This is an annotated edition, edited by Patricia Meyer Spacks, and is full of historical, informative, and entertaining notes of all kinds with a total of 442 pages.
I guess I'll be here for a while....
