People always seem surprised when I so easily can name my favorite book. Without a moment’s hesitation I promptly answer the question that aggravates every booklover. But the thing is, that while different books mean different things to me, no book has ever meant as much or touched me as deep as this. I will never be done with “Persuasion”. I will read and reread it until my eyes are failing and my sight is fading. And even then, I will think about it. Quote it. Incorporate its words into my everyday routine, my mind and my life.

Because I can’t stand the thought of being without it. I will cling to its words for as long as I can. The phrase ‘favorite book’ is not just a title; it is a declaration of love.

This is a book about Druids and King Arthur and Anglo Saxon sorcerers and English history and what I’m trying to say is did Philip Carr-Gomm and Richard Heygate write a book especially for me?  That’s so nice thanks!!

You know what’s sad about reading books? It’s that you fall in love with the characters. They grow on you. And as you read, you start to feel what they feel - all of them - you become them. And when you’re done, you’re never the same. Sure you’re still you, you look the same, talk in the same manner, but something in you has changed. Something in the way you think, the way you choose, sometimes, even the things you say may differ. But it all comes down to the state you go to after a nice novel. The after-feeling. It’s amazing, but somehow, you feel left alone by that world you were once in. It’s overwhelming. But it makes you sad. Cause for once you were this, this otherworldly being in… Neverwhere, and then you suddenly have to say goodbye after a few weeks from when you read the last page. When you’ve recovered from that state it’s just… quite sad.

I’m currently trying to organize my lettering posters into neatly labeled folders and when I get to ‘Nerdfighteria’, let’s just say I am a little bit surprised/amused that it has already been this many.
