I can’t believe it but we gave out over 30 books tonight! Kids were actually excited to get them and yelling to their friends about it. Awesome. #books #reading #allhallowsread #neilgaiman #halloween #beforeandafter
I want to be the type of person who is absolutely bursting with poetry.
I do not mean a poet, but someone who has internalized a wide-ranging scope of excellent poems and can recite stanzas to herself when she is on subways and in grocery lines.
- INTERVIEWER: Did you ever feel that reading so much was an avoidance of experience?
- BLOOM: No. It was for me a terrible rage or passion that was a drive. It was fiery. It was an absolute obsession. I do not think that speculation on my own part would ever convince me that it was an attempt to substitute a more ideal existence for the life that I had to live. It was love.
Acquired today: The Dragon Prince. ??? It dawned on me, when I saw this in the bookstore’s sale bin, that I don’t actually own the fat, yellowed fantasy paperbacks I own in my imaginary library. We’ll see if I like it.
Aaaahhh! Thank you, All Hallow’s Read Giver! The book is completely gorgeous; the gold writing literally shimmers.
I can’t wait to read it!
