I need adult supervision.  
So, guess who went to the bookstore, discovered that Claudia L. Johnson's Jane Austen's Cults and Cultures had finally come out, grabbed it off the shelf, and actually did a little shimmy dance in the aisle?

*raises hand*

Oops. I don't think anyone saw, though. And I have been looking forward to this book since I saw the galleys at MLA, so I splurged and bought it. (Also, I had a frequent buyer discount saved up, and I discovered at reunion that one of my friends has never read I Capture the Castle *or* The Last Unicorn, so I was already buying books anyway.)

Still. I despair of ever being a mature person. Ah well.

You know, I do little shimmy-happy dances in bookstores (and libraries) all the time. The hipsters raise their eyebrows, and the fellow booknerds look at me and beam. And I never liked hipsters anyway.

Books are something worth happy-danicng for. *nods firmly*

Tee hee. Fair point! I doubt I'm going to grow out of it, anyway, at this late date. :)
