I kind of dislike all the books I bought today…

This is really disappointing.

All the people in Highland Park are pissing me off.

A park is a place to eat your lunch and read books, it’s not for jogging and sports.

Get with it, losers.

So, having been missing the Book Discussion/Swapping group that I was in in New York, and not being able to find anything here with anyone under 50, I’m going to organize one.


It’s just basically a way for people to discuss a common book that everyone’s reading, to experience multiple perspectives.

Obviously, details will be organized if there’s enough interest.

Just message me if you’re interested.

"What I say is, a town isn’t a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it’s got a bookstore it knows it’s not fooling a soul."

Hear that, East Egg? Get your shit together- Neil Gaiman says so.

"Foreign offices in Britain and Europe worried that their representatives might not be up to the physical hazards of dealing with Theodore Roosevelt. Junior diplomats campaigned for postings to his court, on the basis of youth and strength. The essential qualification was perhaps best expressed by Cecil Spring Rice, Roosevelt’s former best man and now a British Commissioner in Egypt: “You must always remember that the President is about six.”"
Theodore Rex (Edmund Morris)

I was in the bookstore earlier today and I couldn’t remember the book I wanted to buy, and now I’ve only got a biography of Alexander Hamilton.

I’m bookless. Help.

"You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them."

— Ray Bradbury (via hellyeahbooks)

Isn’t it sad, not only did Ray predict basically correctly what would happen to us, but that he’s alive to watch it happen?
