people who overreact about other people cutting up books to make art
Are you actually serious right now??
People who think cutting up books is art
this totally isn’t art
i could do this in my sleep
The sarcasm in this…. It is AMAZING
To me, this post might be just as important as the bible.
One of my classes. My elderly teacher taught us this because he really cared about books.
Why does no one teach us these things anymore?
I get so uppity when someone breaks the binding on my books.
“There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger!”
Can I live here?
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince (via sad-plath)
(One of my favorite books)
Oh would you look at that. Another bookshelf.
My “Shots in the Dark” got cut off. It’s a wonderful coffee table book of crime scene photographs from the early 1900’s up to Sid Vicious and the Kennedy Assassination. Super cool.
Other than that, Number 9 Dream, a couple of Dark Tower Series books (I wanted each one to be different since I was getting them all secondhand), The Watchmen that I got, oh lord, 7 or 8 years ago from one of my English teachers, ALL OF SANDMAN BECAUSE I’M THAT GIRL, and a couple of manga series I just can’t get rid of (The Demon Ororon where a prince of Hell falls in love with a 15 year old (did I mention Lolita?) and Cowboy Bebop because reasons.
I also have the whole series of “Scalped” which is super good. Check it out if you like Native American modern fiction. (I do.)
A brief glimpse of one of my bookshelves. (I have…so many books.)
John Steinbeck’s East of Eden is one of my favorites of all time. This book is crazy. (One that reminded me of it is The Ballad of Trenchmouth Taggart by M. Glenn Taylor which is also pretty great. I love multi-generational hillbilly stories.)
Mark Z. Danielewski’s House of Leaves which if you are any kind of horror fan I deeply, DEEPLY, suggest this book. Same with 50 Year Sword which is written more as a children’s story but the message is so heavy it just haunts you afterwards.
Great Gatsby because we all wish we were rich and reckless.
Lolita because this book is one of my favorite love stories of all time.
Sherman Alexei because of his honesty. (yukyuk Smoke Signals), Picture of Dorian Gray (should be self explanatory by now), and 4 of my I think 7 or 8 Murakami books. (Kafka on the Shore, Wind Up Bird Chronicles, Dance Dance Dance, and Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World which is one of my favorites.) Battle Royale was on the other side of Steinbeck, you’ll just have to believe me. Oh, Koushun Takami.
I need this so badly.
A book shelf for the most avid of readers…you don’t even have to move to start reading!
Bowled today, my high score was a 189. I know I know, you’re all like “whaaaaat?” I’m pretty much a pro. (haaaaaaa).
Bought some candles. Scents include bamboo lotus, apple blossom, and coastal breeze. The bamboo lotus one smells exactly like a conservatory and its spectacular.
Bought a few books from the Half-Price clearance section per usual including: The Ballad of Trenchmouth Taggart, The Convalescent, and Private Midnight. I don’t really know anything about any of them yet so hopefully they are a good read, they were only 2$ each so can’t go wrong really.
Hoping to get to the good Cheapo in the Roseville/Midway area to search for seasons 2 and 4 of Venture Bros…!
Other than that my dearies life has been pretty mundane, on spring break wooo which includes working and doing homework but seeing the dog and being home with free food is always a nice feeling!
Maybe a haircut. mmmmyes.
