"We are all books because we have spines and stories to tell."
— My coworker (because we work in a library)
Fun fact: Historical books (or books that feel historical, even if they’re really fantasy or whatever) take me so much longer to read than other genres.
So I’m waiting for my books to arrive and I just saw a UPS truck sneak around the corner of my street and MY BOOKS ARE COMING!!! MY BOOKS ARE COMING!!!!!! It’s so late in the day I was starting to lose hope.
Remember when I used to take part in Top Ten Tuesday?
I’d like to start it up again and this week’s topic was Top Ten Bookish Things (That Aren’t Books) That I’d Like to Own. So, okay, here we go in no particular order—
I love these punctuation prints from Etsy, especially because semicolons and ellipsis are two of my favorite punctuation marks.
A nice cover for my bible. There are a couple different Etsy shops that have really cute bible covers, but I just can’t decide which one I want (especially because I’d like to still be able to see the cover of my bible somewhat). But basically I want something cute and functional to protect the good book from rain and snow and mud puddles.
One of these leather quote bracelets. I just don’t know what quote to get on it is the problem.
Postcards from Penguin. The problem here is that 100 postcards is a lot, and I already have quite a few different cards to send to friends and family.
A book light. I have no idea which book light.
A room for my books. I believe they call that a library. And I want it to have a sliding ladder like the bookstore in Beauty and the Beast, despite the fact that ladders scare me.
A Mockingjay necklace.
This sanctuary print to hang in my library. It is, of course, a Series of Unfortunate Events reference.
That one bag from Barnes & Noble that I can’t find online for some reason. It’s like the green and black one and it says Barnes & Noble Booksellers on it? You know.
Also that one mug I saw at Barnes & Noble. It had the alphabet on it.
From the We Were Liars tumblr.
ohmygod i love this and can’t wait for the book and hope it lives up to my crazy hopes.
John Boyne (who wrote The Boy in the Striped Pajamas) has a new book out. HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS??
"If you are a student you should always get a good nights sleep unless you have come to the good part of your book, and then you should stay up all night and let your schoolwork fall by the wayside, a phrase which means ‘flunk’."
Lemony Snicket (via pureblyss)
i agree, which is why i’m such a bad influence on my younger friends.
