The Original of Laura

Posted in book porn by Lauren Leto on December 30, 2009

I did my first read through of The Original of Laura. It’s beautiful but I will need to read it at least two more times before I start popping out the notecards.

Has anyone else tried this yet? I’m going to set up the notecards in the order that I like best (I’m not going to claim that it is the order I believe they should go in) and I’m thinking about framing it once I’m done (I need something for the walls of my office – there’s an empty spot where my LAW DEGREE should be). My other copy of the book is still in the wrap. I’m not sure if I’ll ever take it out.

When I’m done I’ll post the order of my cards. I hope someone else is trying this. I’d love to compare.

    I’m simply too afraid of losing the notecards from my ludicrously expensive book to actually remove them ever.

    I’m going to purchase this as soon as I can hurry out to a bookstore, but I’m not sure if I’ll ever remove the cards. Maybe if I can afford two copies.
