If that's true, I'm a rural gothic literary thriller with overblown language and a deliciously unlikeable protagonist. What are you? (By the way, if you can guess what book that page is from, you have my eternal admiration)
Christmas is fast approaching and I'm so excited! It's such a joyful timeeee. It's also one of the busiest times of the year in church but one filled with significance as we work hard to echo the heart of Jesus to everyone around. I've been fretting just a tad over hitting my reading goal this year, but I realize that it's alright if I don't get as much reading time as I originally thought this month, and if I don't end up reaching my target. There will always be books to be read, but divine appointments are all in His perfect timing. And at the end of the day, the Reason for this season is the best love story of all.
A page from my book "painting in the dark"
Available to order today in my bio!
Which fanfiction though👀😂 Update:Someone tell me why I THOUGHT THIS WAS STRANGER THINGS AND IT SAID DEMOGORGON.I’m sorry Percy Jackson fans.I have failed you😭 (Its 6 am and I’m tired and can’t think😂)
“Love is such that rivers cannot quench” - Anne Bradstreet || Many thanks to @mylittlebooktique for this photo of our Bradstreet tote, and for including that lovely Arnold edition. I hope it includes “Literature and Science” - one of my favorite (and controversial!) debates between Huxley and Arnold. Have you read it? Haley is hosting a tote giveaway on her account, so be sure to check it out!

So today I had a discussion (more like an argument haha) with my boss about LOTR. He talked for ten minutes about how “terribly written” it is. “Why didn’t they just use the eagles? Just line them up, have each eagle fly for a stretch.” Ummmm, because the eagles are noble creatures, not a relay or taxi service? And they can’t fly that far and would get shot by orcs and attacked by fell beasts and Nazgûl??! “And where was Gandalf? He’s hundreds of years old and wise, why didn’t he help them?”
I stuttered out a few arguments, but finally just stood with my mouth open. There’s just nothing you can say to people like that 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️ Does this ever happen to you guys? When people bash your favorite books/movies, do you argue back or silently (but harshly) judge their ignorance? •
Look at the lovely print from the Middle Earth @nerdy.post box! It features one of my favorite LOTR quotes, and is so gorgeous 😍 My shipping notification for the Narnia box came today and I’m beside myself with excitement 🎉 Did you get the Narnia box? If not, you’re missing out, but you can subscribe now for the Disney Villains box, which will be awesome, and you can use my code DRAGON10 for a discount!!
Through the front door tonight. The flying snow and reflections in the glass made for a cool effect.

زندگی درد قشنگیست به جز شبهایش

👧کودکان را کتابخوان کنیم
آنچه که همیشه برای انسان میماند، #کتابخوانی در سنین پائین است.
📚جوانانِ شما، کودکانِ شما هرچه میتوانند، #کتاب بخوانند؛ در فنون مختلف، در راههای مختلف، مطلبی یاد بگیرند.
⚠️ البته از هرزهگردی در محیط کتاب هم باید پرهیز کرد، منتها این مسئلهی بعدی است؛
📚 مسئلهی اول این است که یاد بگیرند، عادت کنند به این که اصلاً به کتاب مراجعه کنند، کتاب نگاه کنند. رهبر انقلاب
+حضرت #آقا میفرمان من نمی فرمام😊
+کتابخوانی واقعا مهمه،به آدم شعور،منطق و عقل میده
+اگر کتابخوانِ بیشعور و بی منطق دیدید ناامید نشید(بهش کتاب بیشعوری رو هدیه بدید،اگر داره که دوغ خودتونو بنوشید😁)
+وقتی می بینم آقا این قدر(اندازش پیدا نیست)با سواد اند و از هر موضوعی حتی یه ذره سر رشته دارن دلم میخواد منم همش کتاب بخونم
شب را به
عشق تو صبح میکنم
که سلام کنم
که سلام کنی
که من جان بدهم
و تو جان بگیری
