"The book itself is a curious artifact, not showy in its technology but complex and extremely efficient: a really neat little device, compact, often very pleasant to look at and handle, that can last decades, even centuries. It doesn’t have to be plugged in, activated, or performed by a machine; all it needs is light, a human eye, and a human mind. It is not one of a kind, and it is not ephemeral. It lasts. It is reliable." -Ursula K. Le Guin
"I felt as if I would soon be transported to a magical land, able to read books that would carry me to places I was never able to go. It was a thrill. And that was the beginning of a lifelong experience of not only loving libraries, but living in libraries." - Doris Kearns Goodwin on her love of libraries
Life in a library for ya!
There once was a girl, who had a friend that lived in the shadows. She would remind him how the sun felt on his skin and the air felt like to breathe, and that reminded her that she was still alive.
i have a notebook obsession!
Nothing wrong with that!
Better than anything.
I wish to be something amazing.
While I was in Oxford with Stacey and Claire, we went to loads of places. By far my favorite place we visited was The Story Museum. It’s an entire exhibit dedicated to one thing: If you could become your favorite childhood story character, who would you be? I had so much fun there, I wrote a post just about it!
