The Great Gatsby Presented Entirely Through Margin Notes
Previously: Chapter 1
to NYC w/ Tom
walk into a brick building
Wilson’s eyes —>
vitality, despite dull looks
even Wilson is covered in ash
in a cab
tries to assert his superiority
Myrtle + George Wilson
what he describes is little (eyebrows) but telling
how Myrtle’s behavior changes
Fitz. is mocking artists
Catherine saying that they should divorce.
Lucille + Chester McKee
why Myrtle married George
when she realizes it’s not going to work
like before: privy to lots of information
hears things, but never asks to hear them
such a cliche, but she doesn’t think so
The schedule of the rapid socialite
Tom hits her.
Because tapestries are more important than the problem
He leaves w/ Chester
Jim and I went through high school together - meaning my all-girls school and his all-boys school were buddies - and I’m kind of really looking forward to re-experiencing The Great Gatsby through his marginalia. Yay books!
I did this thing.
Please tell me how big my ears are. I can’t stop thinking about it.
I promise to be better next time.

“The fantasy of the secret collector who wants to gloat over his private collection is not common in reality.” The strange mystery of the stolen books of Lambeth Palace.

I read a wonderful book called The Man Who Loved Books Too Much last year. It was absolutely fascinating and made me want to quit life and read all the time.
Another fabulous Harry Potter found at The Last Bookstore in downtown LA!
What should I write about for HelloGiggles this weekend, guys?
