reading books about birds in bed

in real life, i'm scared of birds. 
but in books, i think they're pretty. 
i'd even say i love them in books. especially in this book. 
and especially in this book, in bed



*p.s. some of you asked what book this is. i thrifted it, but you can find it on amazon here.

  2. birds books beds, great alliteration ;) AND a great combo - I love birds. My mom has a bird feeder right at her window by her computer desk and sometimes you're sitting there and a little bird comes up and it feels like they're checking you out as much as you're checking them out. It always makes me laugh a bit!

    Do you mind my asking, why do you fear birds in real life?

  7. SOme weeks ago I bird came into my room through my window and it was a bad experience, I was screaming and terrified, so I guess I also love brids in books and prints.

    See you!

  10. @megan lynn: i posted a link up in the post for you. : ) i had thrifted it, but was able to find a few copies on amazon. it's such a treat. honestly, i'm tempted to buy another one just to take the prints out of. you could cover a whole (little wall with them).

  11. @sarah dawnee: haha! i have a few friends who share my phobia…and then a lot of friends who find it very puzzling. i'm not sure i can pinpoint it exactly, because i've been afraid of being close to them for as long as i can remember. i'm scared of their gait, for one. but also, i've had several birds land on my head, and also i've been attacked by a flock of geese, though i was scared of them before both incidents. it is irrational…but, i was reading recently it's one of the most common phobias. guess you learn something new every day!
