Nothing can top a hunchback...

Today, when I was rummaging through a charity shop book sale, I grabbed a vintage copy of The Hunchback of Notre Dame on my way out... for $3.... deep red cover, gold engraved writing, pages lightly spotted from age and a nice yellow weaved bookmark... amazing!

Later on in the day, when I met with a friend and told him about my splendifirous book buy, he replied with...

"No Vampires, the best there is... a hunchback!" 

then, my mum walked by and chimed in with...

"Nothing can top a hunchback!"

So, I am beginning to read for the first time, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. I hope to read a book a day, 11 to go, I should finish soon... Keep reading for more updates.

Bahahaha that is hilarious, but so true. Nothing beats a Hunchback. I actually have a friend who is a legitimate hunchback! She's basically awesome. :) Anyway since you're reading this you should think about doing this French reading challenge over here: http://bewareofthefroggies.blogspot.com/2011/08/we-want-you-to-read-french-authors.html
