I feel like you're having a break down.

I so am and it’s about a book. What’s new?

I have a question for you, and I really hope I don't annoy you with it. Soooo, when you start with a series that (for example) consists of three books, do you read them in on go? Meaning one after another or do you read other stuff before you continue reading a book from the series? I hope you get what I mean, have a nice day. xx

Hi, no I promise your question is not annoying! I love getting questions. Yes, I’d rather read series consecutively. It’s nicer to have all the information from the last book fresh in your mind as you keep going.

… what if loving something means you should mostly feel frustrated and thwarted, and then a little ruined, too, by the pursuit. But that you still come back for more…

Books may look like nothing more than words on a page, but they are actually an infinitely complex imaginotransference technology that translates odd, inky squiggles into pictures inside your head.

International Day of the Book - William Shakespeare’s 450th Birthday 

amandaonwriting:

World Book Day or World Book and Copyright Day (also known as International Day of the Book or World Book Days) is a yearly event on 23 April, organized by UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and copyright. It is hoped that World Book and Copyright Day will increase people’s understanding of copyright laws and other measures to protect intellectual copyright.

In the United Kingdom, the day is instead recognised on the first Thursday in March.

World Book Day was celebrated for the first time on 23 April 1995. The date is symbolic for world literature. Cervantes, Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega all died on 23 April 1616. 

23 April has also been taken as Shakespeare’s birthday (he was baptised on 26 April 1564, and his actual date of birth is unknown). This year, 2014, marks William Shakespeare’s 450th Birthday.

Understanding Poetry

Happy National Poetry Month! This comic was inspired by one of my favorite poems, "The New Poetry Handbook" by Mark Strand. This month on Incidental Comics, I’ll be exploring the world of poetry. A place, as Marianne Moore famously said, of  ”imaginary gardens with real toads in them.”
