Jay and I decided to start reading together whenever we get the chance. He picked out a collection of books by Edgar Allan Poe and so far it’s been a sweet experience. Reading and getting weirded out together is nicer than watching our 4th movie in one day. It let’s us imagine. Whenever we finish reading we jot a little note about it on the contents page.

I love it when I find a good book. When I read it it’s like being taken away to a different world and you imagine the scenes in you head as if you’re there watching them happen in front of you. It makes you forget about everything for a little while.

Nothing beats laying naked in bed, surrounded by tons of pillows while reading a book👍

One time a friend said characters in books are not real and I felt so offended I started crying

"There must be quite a few things a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them. Whenever I’m sad I’m going to die, or so nervous I can’t sleep, or in love with somebody I won’t be seeing for a week, I slump down just so far and then I say: ‘I’ll go take a bath.’" - Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

And yet the books will be there on the shelves, separate beings,
That appeared once, still wet
As shining chestnuts under a tree in autumn,
And touched, coddled, began to live
In spite of fires on the horizon, castles blown up,
Tribes on the march, planets in motion.
“We are,” they said, even as their pages
were being torn out, or a buzzing flame
licked away their letters. So much more durable
than we are, whose frail warmth
cools down, with memory, disperses, perishes.
I imagine the earth when I am no more:
Nothing happens, no loss, it’s still a strange pageant,
Women’s dresses, dewy lilacs, a song in the valley,
Yet the books will be there on the shelves, well born,
Derived from people, but also from radiance, heights.
And Yet the Books - Czeslaw Milosz (via qalum)

Yes, I want someone who loves to read…

creative0wl:

but I would love even more if they sat back and read TO me.

Words weren’t dull, words were things that could make your mind hum. If you read them and let yourself feel the magic, you could live without pain, with hope, no matter what happened to you.

-Charles Bukowski via Ham on Rye

Why should I do my summer work when I can reread Harry Potter?

It is a great thing to start life with a small number of really good books which are your very own.
Arthur Conan Doyle (via danger-opportunity)
I came to this city to escape. This city is full of towers to climb and climb, and to climb faster and faster, marveling at the design and dreaming at the view from the top. At the top there is a keen wind and everything is so far away it’s impossible to say what is what. There is no one to discuss it with. Cats can count on the fire brigade and Rapunzel was lucky with her hair. Wouldn’t it be nice to sit on the ground again? I came to this city to escape.

Nothing says commitment issues better than the speed with which I put down a book once I realize it has a sequel.
