"Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it."

"I've travelled the world twice over,
Met the famous; saints and sinners,
Poets and artists, kings and queens,
Old stars and hopeful beginners,
I've been where no-one's been before.
Learned secrets from writers and cooks
All with one library ticket
To the wonderful world of books."

The first thing I did after my paper was book hunting at the National Library! My current read: The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, one of my favourite poets. This is her only novel, a roman à clef. She killed herself at the age of 30. Such a shame. :(
