Late night reading

  • Me: It's getting pretty late. I should probably go to bed.
  • Book: But there's only a little over a hundred pages left...
  • Me: Can't argue with that. Let's do this.

My local rescue has a program called Book Buddies where kids read to sheltered cats to keep them from being lonely.

So many libraries offer Read To A Dog events, why not Read to A Cat. Also, Happy Monday. Kitties! Squee!

Our Monday has officially been brightened.

Happy Monday!

i want to open a book store that is 24 hours and people can finally go out at like 2am and be like “i just finished the first book in the series i need the next one stat” or if people are just having a stressful night and want to be surrounded by books

My favorite part about this post is that someone understands that it’s calming to be surrounded by books

Seeing someone read a book you love is seeing a book recommend a person.

update: kate elliot is not actually a woman of color and i’m confused as to how she ended up on this list :(

oooh, ‘what’s left of me’ is a good book! ~K.

I’ll have to check it out. Somewhat embarrassingly, I have only read a couple of these—in genres I tend to enjoy. :/

Have you ever wondered where books come from?

Well then, let me show you, because that’s what I do for a living.

Right now, it’s this time of the year, and the little ones have just freshly hatched:

You’ll notice they’re still blind and naked when they hatch. So I make them little coats to keep them warm during their first winter:

image

See how they happily line up to put them on:

image

See? Better. Now they’re ready to go and explore the world.

And if they make it through the winter and we take good care of them, they will grow up to be strong and wise like their older fellows:

So, in case you were ever wondering, now you know.

Howdy! I'm really dumb and this blog's really dumb. It's a multifandom mess. Idek anymore.

I co-mod a book blog. We'd love it if you'd stop by!
