bloggingbooks: Postertext is a company based in Canada that takes the text of an entire book and converts it into a poster. The above is Little Women- however, it only has the first 17 chapters. Right now they are focusing on classical lit but soon they are moving on to contemporary and are asking for suggestions! Go recommend your favorite book! Oh. My. Gawd.
kscarlat: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1343092/ Is this for real? Baz Luhrmann, the director of both Moulin Rouge! and Romeo+Juliet, two movies I adore, doing a movie adaptation of The Great Gatsby? One of my all-time favorite novels? Starring Leonardo DiCaprio? THIS IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.

I had no idea that replies and anonymous questions were not enabled. Fixed. Go nuts.
Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round...– Jack Kerouac (via truthbet0ld) Yeah. But too bad Jack never said that. That’s from an old Apple advertising campaign. Cool quote nonetheless, but I don’t know how his name got attached to it.
No, some people just suck.
I was at my old elementary school today. It’s a weird experience because I spent 10 years of my life there. And while I have good memories, I also have some really shitty ones. You know how people say things like, “kids will be kids” and “kids are just cruel”…? Well, it’s not because they’re kids. Maybe it’s because some people are just...
Kunis is heading to OZ!
YES. omfg, yes. I’m all over this idea. iheartclassics: Mila will be co-starring with James Franco in this prequel to The Wizard of Oz! Can’t wait to watch her battle it out for control over the emerald city!!!!

World Poetry Day
I’m not a huge fan of poetry for some reason. While it is excessively hot to have poetry recited, I’ve never been a big fan of reading or studying it. Of course there are exceptions, but they are few and far between. I guess that just makes me picky. Here are two that make me a little swoony.. She Walks in Beauty She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry...
Heart and Soul.
Shelf one of many. There is no such thing as too many books. I cannot imagine ever using or owning one of those insidious e-reader gadgets. Nothing replaces holding a book in your hands, turning and creasing and smelling the paper, slipping a thin ribbon between the pages to mark your place, and falling asleep with visions of places and people far away playing in your imagination, a book...
Pleasure comes precisely from the sharpest awareness of your own degradation;...– From Notes from the Underground by Fyodor Dostoevsky I cannot even begin to explain why this affects me so deeply
Atticus told me to delete the adjectives and I’d have the facts.– To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee (via fuckyeahliteraryquotes)
Shut your eyes and see.– James Joyce (via libraryland)
Game. Set. Match.
That little voice in my head finally gave me the right advice. I avoided a mistake that I might’ve been dumb enough to make in the past. What was awesome was that I didn’t even falter or think to consider the (unappealing is an understatement) alternative. And THAT, Charlie Sheen, is “duh, WINNING” For real though, I’m proud of myself. Growing up doesn’t...
A few light taps upon the pane made him turn to the window. It had begun to snow...– From “The Dead” by James Joyce. And that, my friends, is the most perfect, most beautiful paragraph ever written in the English language. It’s part of the reason I studied literature. Chills. Every time.
Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.– Frederick Douglass (via theliterarysnob)
30 Day Photo Challenge ~ Day 10
A photo of the person you do the most fucked up things with. That’s Jen. We met on a John Mayer message board, of all places. Our friendship started out as concert buddies and quickly evolved into her becoming my best friend. The summer this photo was taken we road tripped to Ohio like absolute crazy people to see a John Mayer show together. I swear we have real lives! Anyway, that...
That’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool– The Great Gatsby ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
I find such beautiful things hidden in books.
30 Day Photo Challenge ~ Day 09
A photo of the person who has gotten you through the most. All right. So when the majority of the crap in my life happened, I was the one that got myself through it. I’ve always kept to myself and had a small circle of friends. And, to be totally honest, I rarely go to others with my problems even now. It seems like a rather lonely way to live, and maybe it is, but I honestly...

fakescience: Make sure to use a couple of pots after visiting our friends at Snooki In Wonderland.
I have never known any distress that an hour’s reading did not relieve.– Charles de Montesquieu (via theliterarysnob)
30 Day Photo Challenge ~ Day 08
A photo that makes you laugh. I took this in the car as we were driving home from the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, the first time I ever got a chance to go. We had seen Much Ado About Nothing, which was phenomenal, by the way. And I bought this stuffed William Shakespeare doll (among other things) because, really, this kind of thing was made for someone like me. In this photo, Wills is...
30 Day Photo Challenge ~ Day 07
A photo of your most treasured item. That’s my car. (I know nothing about cars. At all. But it’s a pretty effing awesome car. Well, to me anyway). It’s a 2010 Honda Fit Sport. Now, wait a minute, this is not as superficial as you think. And, yes, there are significant items like photos that I would save if my house was on fire. But let me explain what the car...
30 Day Photo Challenge ~ Day 06
A photo of a person you’d love to trade places with for a day. I have a couple answers for this question… First, President Obama. Because that would be a REALLY interesting day. Second, Atom Egoyan. Because, for a film nerd like me, it would be the ultimate to be in his head for a day. He is so brilliant though that I think my head would explode. And last, but not...
30 Day Photo Challenge ~ Day 05
A photo of your favorite memory. This is a difficult one because I have a lot of favorite memories. Most recently though, last summer sticks out in my mind. I went on a cruise in August 2010 with Allan, his sister, Nicole (my best friend), and Nicole’s boyfriend’s family. There were 12 of us and we called ourselves The Dirty Dozen. We had such a good time creating havoc wherever...
30 Day Photo Challenge ~ Day 04
A photo of your night. Ready for how wild and crazy I get on a Thursday night?… That’s right. Sweats and socks, tea in a Shakespeare mug, a book, some nailpolish, and my laptop. The only thing missing is the iphone that took this photo. And the sound of Switchfoot in the background. Now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s almost time for Jersey Shore.
30 Day Photo Challenge ~ Day 03
A photo of the cast of your favorite show. Ok, so this is a tricky one. If we mean ‘show that is currently on the air’, that would be Glee: If we mean favorite show EVER, there are a few contenders: Dawson’s Creek Buffy the Vampire Slayer and My So-Called Life Honorable mentions go to: Saved by the Bell, Felicity, Party of Five and probably a bunch of...
