Reading on repeat

This is my copy of To Kill a Mocking Bird, it’s from 1974 and I also bought it for just 1 euro last year. It was purchased on my favorite Belgrade Book Fair where I go for book overdose, once a year unfortunately, but it is always worth it. I read a lot, really, really, but recently I got to the phase of re-reading some books as I feel like it wasn’t me who read them before. I guess it’s that ageing thing or something like that...(insert apprehensive smiley face)

I read it for the university assignment long time ago. It wasn’t easy as it was my first year of studying and my English was far worse than today. But it stayed in my mind and I’am curious to see how I will manage this time round after about 9 years (man, that much?).

The skirt

For just 1, I say ONE, euro I bought this skirt on a flea market on Saturday. The man was selling out everything on the pile for 1 euro, but I thought there was no way he would give me this skirt for that little. First I thought why no one else snatched it, people are crazy or am I crazy maybe it’s the ugliest skirt in the world and I am the only one who likes it. Either way I was prepared to give that man everything I had in my wallet at that moment, be it a gold bar (which I didn’t then… or ever… or ever will… but I would give it… probably). 

Anyways, with the squeakiest voice I asked how much for this one and he said ‘Everything for 100 dinars’ (that’s 1 euro). Never was I quicker to open my wallet. I believe I was kind of running home thinking he would change his mind and go after me. I still adore it and I'm still not sure everyone else think it's horrendous. 

Now the skirt waits for the golden moment to be worn and a 3 pounds to be shed, since I can zip it but the sitting would be tricky, and the breathing part is important to me, too. But you know when there is motivation…
