The Power of Books.
I actually had image number 3 happen to me once, but if you’re going to bury yourself in maritime fiction, that’s one of the risks.
when it comes to reading i’m either reading 400 pages a day or taking a month to read 200 there is no inbetween
that awesome moment when you finished reading a really good book and you see it at a store then you cunningly smile at it as if you had an affair with it.
casual fact about me: I’m always reading, and usually 3 or 4 books simultaneously
I have done this since I was about six years old (only then they were obviously much shorter)
a second casual fact about me: I started teaching myself to read based on how words sounded and how they looked (I made my dad point out which words looked like what) before I knew the alphabet, so I have weird pronunciation quirks
a third casual fact about me: all this reading means I constantly narrate my own life in my head and once got into a really fucking meta conversation with another English major about whether or not we are reliable narrators for our own lives
i love first person EVERYTHING because IS THE NARRATOR A RELIABLE SOURCE
OR IS THE NARRATOR HAMLET AND FUCKING BALLS TO THE WALL BATSHIT CRAZY
can we just talk about if hamlet was a novel written in first person by hamlet
This… Is fascinating!
Andrew Carnegie built an impressive 2,509 libraries around the turn of the 20th century. Now Rick Brooks and Todd Bol are on a mission to top his total with their two-foot by two-foot Little Free Libraries.
The diminutive, birdhouse-like libraries, which Brooks and Bol began installing in Hudson and Madison, Wisconsin, in 2009, are typically made of wood and Plexiglas and are designed to hold about 20 books for community members to borrow and enjoy. Offerings include anything from Russian novels and gardening guides to French cookbooks and Dr. Seuss.
All I hear in my head is ‘Yo dawg I heard you like books…”
