i'm still quite sure that amazon.com will be responsible for the fall of western civilization, but i admit that it brought me great joy by teleporting a box of goodness to my desk in two days (with super saver shipping! i was expecting it at the end of next week!). perhaps the little gnomes who run the universe pitied me in my ongoing state of suspense and thought i could use a distraction; that's what i thought when i placed the order, anyway.
i realized as i clawed my way through the packaging that its contents were the subjects of one of my favorite paintings. that's todays reader challenge, then:
what books did i order?
