I devour the written word. I work with the written word. I love books or anything written. I worry for those who don't.

Most of the photos I publish aren't mine, if I've given credit incorrectly or not at all to something you know, please let me know so I can fix it.


Read the Printed Word!

I can’t even describe to you how much I want all of these books in my collection.

Okay so I read through books quite rapidly, and I'm really interested in fantasy and historical fiction, are there any books that you could recommend? I've gotten through almost all on my reading list and I need more

Fantasy is not really my strong suit, so I’m going to stick on the historical fiction if thats Ok.

Depending on how old you are I’d recommend the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. They’re long romances but very steeped in historical fiction. 

It’s more magical realism, but you might also like Sarah Addison Allen books like The Peach Keeper

You might also try Water for Elephants if you haven’t read that yet, also The Help, is phenomenal. 

If you’re into YA, Ransom Rigg’s Miss Peregrines Home books are wonderful.

Also, Dreamers of the Day is a fantastic historical fiction. 

I hope those give you some ideas!

crimsonpsycho asked
do you know any websites that sell books with covers that are out of the ordinary?

Hi! I find that you can get a variety of book covers from Book Depository. They get books from all over the world so its likely that you’ll be able to find covers from other countries, which I find to be so much more fun!

But that said, I’m not quite sure what you mean by out of the ordinary. Maybe one of the my followers can help?

What does it mean when I write until I get a bloody nose and I start to see the outlines of angels?

gr8writingtips:

you are ready

It means that the Sheriffs Secret Police will be coming to your home and take to you the standard reeducation. As angels are not real and writing is illegal.

Caroline sent me this in my personal blog, and I just had to share it with all you potterheads:

… If you’re a Harry Potter fan, this is wonderful news. [The study] provides some experimental backing for J.K. Rowling’s opinion that, “The Potter books in general are a prolonged argument for tolerance, a prolonged plea for an end to bigotry.”

More importantly, it shows that conveying messages of tolerance through literature actually works. Potter’s journey of self-discovery, then, might some day be immortalized in projects that aim to teach tolerance to young children.
