For Marilyn Monroe's birthday, Open Culture digs up this wonderful photo of her reading Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass – another manifestation of Monroe’s little-known literary side, best embodied in her unpublished poems and penchant for Ulysses.

When I got home from work tonight, Ashtyn greeted me at the door, dragged me to the couch, and handed me Curious George. We read the book 3 times while Lindy cooked dinner! Her intelligence completely blows me away.

Sometimes I deal with some heavy issues at work and I try not to bring it home with me. It certainly helps put a smile on my face when Ashtyn greets me at the door with a book and a smile :*)

Day 01. New Favourite
Jamaica Inn 
“No, Mary had no illusions about romance. Falling in love was a pretty name for it, that was all.” 
I’m a real life cynic but when it comes to books I love a good 19th century romance. And it’s not just the book I fell in love with - look at the cover! So pretty. I’m planning a trip to Cornwall this summer and I may take it down with me for a re-read.
