awww that sounds like a really good offer because I love taking care of and reading to people, but I’m taken and you live a bit far away :)

Dangit! The search continues :)

what happened?

ebi00 replied to your post: Wow.

I agree, but what brought you to that conclusion?

Some guy I don’t know at all just felt it incumbent upon him to send me a message telling me how fat and ugly and unsexy I am.

Like. A guy who lives in Turkey. I have no idea who this person is, and they can’t possibly know me. And they saw some of my photos and thought it would be good to inform me that I may think I’m sexy, but I’m not. And that he hates it when fat people pretend they’re sexy.

What a winner.

be careful, On The Road isn’t an easy one to read aloud - none of the Beats are. but i love the idea!

Actually changed my mind already since I’ve both seen the movie, ergo it’s not all-new, and I’ve never read the book, ergo, it’s too new.

Now considering One Hundred Years of Solitude as it’s very dense, story-wise and also has a number of “oh god, what the fuck is going on now?” moments. Or an Austen. One of the less beloved ones.

RE: book blog insecurity

bezrodny answered your question: Moment of book blog insecurity.

I like it, but I suck at blog feedback.

Well, I appreciate your liking it, then :) Feel free to let me know if you’d like to see more of a certain type of content, or if you’d like to ask me a question about a specific book or whatever :) I aim to please!

 belgianwhovian answered your questionMoment of book blog insecurity.

personally,I want to get through my 20 pages of tumblr every day and your well-founded opinions r a lot to read.I hardly know your books2,srr

I totally understand ;) So are you interested in the quotes or pictures then? Or would you go to the page itself pr the index on a quiet moment, to read at your leisure?

 mariakleopatra answered your questionMoment of book blog insecurity.

it doesn’t, and you know that. tumblr is just a very passive medium, first, and also very visual. how many posts are pics and how many text?

It is quite passive, I get that :/ That’s why I post photosets, and also put the reviews in a photo format. I guess it’s half-and-half. 

I know tumblr is visually oriented, but my images don’t get a lot more notes than the reviews. It’s actually the quotes I post that get reblogged and liked most often.

Doctor Who. I know. It’s exhilerating, isn’t it? All that new information flooding your brain, taking you on the most mental yet marvellous ride?

You, Miss, are a poet! I can never stop watching. BUT deadlines are in fact a real thing, so I have now gotten properly dressed and made coffee. More episodes tonight! :D

Oh yay, look at me, being all “it”.

1. I have a book blog! Nobody actually reads it :p

2. I’m moving soon and looking forward to an entire wall’s worth of bookcases.

3. Because I’m graduating next year, I went a little hair colour crazy a few month’s back and went from brunette to ginger to pink to blonde and back to brunette. 

4. I got my first pair of glasses a month ago at age 22 and am very happy about it.

5. My favourite childhood book was Matilda by Roald Dahl. It still sucks that those telekenetic powers never happened.

6. I have a cat. His name is Typhus because at 18, I thought that was funny. 

7. I’m suprised people follow my personal blog because it isn’t very coherent.

8. My internship will be at a forensic facility working with sexual delinquents; very much looking forward to it.

9. I wish I could play the piano.

10. Single. Gentlemen.

belgianwhovian replied to your post: Riddle me this, Tumblr:

I would just like to say that I appreciate how you like to discuss such matters intellectually and open-mindedly, especially in an environment that stimulates simplifications like turning “emotions” into “feels” and you probably know what else.

Thank you! That was my intention. I actually don’t like the term “hate” although I did use the word for Martha (unfortunately simplifying). Though I love tumblr, I’m not fond of the way that everything gets put into polarising terms: every negative comment about a character is “hate”. No, hate is a powerful and destructive thing. Calling every instance of that “hate” just paves the way for more extreme reactions on both sides, when what I’m sure most people mean is “I don’t like such and such(’s action)” instead of “I hope that this person gets their eyes gauged out.”

In this context, Orwell’s 1984 (and more especially its appendix) provides a fascinating insight into the way our language shapes our thoughts and emotions, just as often as the other way around. Recommend! :)
