Advanced Bookfacing

I don't want this to become an entirely specialized blog, but I did want to share that Margot's developed her bookfacing technique to a "post-modern" level where the book need not even technically reach the face.

First, I assure you that she's been asleep for some time in this one . . . but the book remains prime should she awake and need it:

Second, keeping a hand on things to make sure that one of her favorites doesn't get away, even when a-slumber:

Return of the Bookface

So - I have to say, Margot has lately developed a whole new technique of falling-asleep-with-a-book. A combination of reading some bigger books and tending to lie on her side more with the book propped next to her has led to a series of tableau with the book standing next to her thoroughly slumbering form. Tonight's is of the same ilk, but she's got her face well enough buried in there that I'm counting it as one of the old, if also one of the new.

(The hand stranded on top of the book is typical of the form...)

As long as we're at it, here are a couple more bonus shots (non-book-facey) since it's been a while.
