Nothing can compare to books and writing while it’s raining.

Every time I see this I think to myself “You defaced a book? Hell no I’m not marrying you.”

Yeah, I feel that way too. Glad I’m not the only one. Though I really like those flowers I’ve seen made from books. I’m torn over those…

He could have gotten a blank box for a couple of dollars, photocopied the first page of the chapter, pasted it to the inside of the box, made the box look just like the book; without defacing the book.

#PRINTED BOOKS ARE NOT SACRED   #THERE ARE MILLIONS OF THEM   #I HAVE A LOT OF FEELS   #ABOUT HOW PEOPLE WORSHIP THE PHYSICAL FORM OF BOOKS   #AND NOT THE WORDS INSIDE   #THE WORDS ARE THE IMPORTANT BIT   #AND USING A BOOK FOR SOMETHING SWEET LIKE THIS ISN’T DEFACEMENT OF PROPERTY IF THE PERSON OWNS THE BOOK. BOOKS ARE UBIQUITOUS   #AND HAVING WORKED IN A USED BOOKSTORE A LOT OF THEM GET TRASHED   #AND NOT JUST CRAPPY BOOKS   #GOOD ONES LIKE THIS ONE   #I WOULD RATHER SOMEONE USE THIS FOR SOMETHING MEMORABLE LIKE THIS THAN GET TRASHED   #DON’T JUDGE PEOPLE WHO TRY TO MAKE PRETTY THINGS WITH BOOKS   #BOOKS CAN BE REPLACED AND ARE NOT INHERENTLY SACRED  (via andrastesgrace)

Reblogging for the tags, basically. As long as the person proposing didn’t use MY copy of the book I would be good. :P
I must however admit to having feels for my own copies of books. I write in the margins, I put little smiley-faces next to paragraphs or sentences I particularly like. I store a lot of myself in my books.

I know it might sound a little preachy, but I honestly believe this.

Right now I’m reading a book on Greek mythology, “Death comes to Pemberley” by P.D. James, a biography about Leif Juster, “The Maltese Falcon” by Dashiell Hammet and “The Western Canon” by Harold Bloom. Make of it what you will. (I can’t make anything out of it. :P) And I’m not even listing the books I read for class.

I want a man who sends me books the way other men send flowers.

Also I want flowers. And dinner. And chocolate. … Please.

Of course I need a library! Do you really think I’ll have room in the rest of my future home which so far consists mostly of book shelves study for all my books? No! You underestimate how many books I’m gonna buy once I know where to put them! Of course I need a library, you silly goose. (Geese? How many reads these posts anyways? Anyone?)
