Recently we went and saw Jurassic World with my friend Katherine - which was great - I loved Chris Pratt from Guardians of the Galaxy and Parks & Rec - and this movie was fantastic. (Provided you're ready to suspend your disbelief and just have fun for a few hours).
I read Jurassic Park in one sitting when it came out, and I remember being surprised at what a TERRIFYING book it was, despite the subject matter - and it made me feel silly for being scared. Michael Crichton was one of my favorite writers and I'm sad that he's gone. I still think he was secretly droned for writing Micro. They'll get Richard Preston next!
I think I've only ever read one other book in one sitting and it's still one of my favorites - and that was Into Thin Air. If you haven't read this - DO IT TODAY! (But clear your schedule first).
I've noticed as I've gotten more vintage and the internet has become a bigger part of my life, that I don't read physical books anymore, and I miss it sometimes when I think about these favorite books. I listen to a lot of audio books, and I read things occasionally on my Kindle, but I stamp in all the time I used to read in, I think.
I never was a newspaper reader - the large format and gross transferable ink (hold the irony - I know I'm covered in ink all the time now) - never appealed to me. I do like magazines, but there are fewer of the ones I like being published, and so the only two left that I regularly read are Martha Stewart Living and an occasional crossword or puzzle magazine.
So since I have dinosaurs on the brain and I'm pondering becoming vintage, I had a great idea to combine two new stamp sets - No Bones About It and That Thing You Did for a hilarious result. Look how much he looks like Michael Crichton's original Jurassic Park book cover - makes me laugh. I love this set.

Hilarious right? Now what old person am I going to send this to for their birthday?? Heh.
And look - I even used GREEN! Cucumber Crush is the perfect dino-green!
