People who give books as gifts are my favorite people. Because they are actually looking at a story or have read a story and want you to enjoy it too or think that you would like it. I don’t know why I just think it’s really special and it makes me happy.
“I believe that books can bring you back to life. When everything seems hopeless and lost in your world, you can open a book and enter a story that can make your heart sigh with love once again.”—(via inivyandintwine)
“Do they sense it, these dead writers, when their books are read? Does a pinprick of light appear in their darkness? Is their soul stirred by the feather touch of another mind reading theirs? I do hope so.”—Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale (via bibliophilebunny)
me and roe aren’t friends right now so let’s just ignore her (even if we do talk a lot on here)
but gayle and carol are both definitely two of my closests friends on here and we talk about a lot of stupid shit like hoovers and funnel cake and i don’t know why but people seem to find it entertaining.
EDIT: WE REALLLY ARE FRIENDS OK. WE’RE JUST KIDDING.I LOVE HER REALLY.
Do you ever have those books where you get jealous when other people start to read them? It’s such a weird feeling because I always want other people to read more, but there are those that you don’t want to tell anyone about.
“I never need to find time to read. When people say to me, ‘Oh, yeah, I love reading. I would love to read, but I just don’t have time,’ I’m thinking, ‘How can you not have time?’ I read when I’m drying my hair. I read in the bath. I read when I’m sitting in the bathroom. Pretty much anywhere I can do the job one-handed, I read.”—J.K. Rowling (via wordpainting)
