The Unabridged Short Stories & Books... of the Lemur's Wedding

Just a short post to tell you that Mr. Lemur and I paid a visit to the largest used bookstore in Greenville—Mr. K's Used Books—awhile back to fill our vision of a book-themed wedding. We knew we were looking for classics and books we had read and loved, such as Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice and Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. Ok maybe that was just me; Nathan was looking at Mark Twain and Charles Dickens.

We bought each of the following books for about five dollars each—not bad for hardbound classics!
  • Pride & Prejudice
  • O Pioneers
  • Doctor Zhivago
  • Selected Stories and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe
  • Uncle Tom's Cabin
  • The Scarlet Pimpernel
  • Wuthering Heights
  • Mutiny on the Bounty

Here's Mr. Lemur modeling our books...

Nice. But really, see how all the books are different sizes, shapes, and colors, yet have a cohesive theme? Perfect! Now I just need forty more or so...
