Thank goodness I no longer have to pay #rent. Just a mortgage. But the trade off is I get a library. Please pardon the mess.

#LaVieBoheme First thing that came to mind!

#MyShot can become a deadly obsession for a filmmaker sometimes as an actor learns in this book inspired by Cannibal Holocaust.

"And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door"
Also, Happy Birthday to Edgar Allan Poe!

vivastory I had mixed feelings for We Eat Our Own, it felt like two separate stories. I'm still interested in what the author has planned next 4y
erzascarletbookgasm What a great catch up! 👏 4y

rohit-sawant @vivastory It's still on my TBR so that's good to know! Won't be rushing to pick it up anytime soon. I read the blurb over a year ago and was really intrigued by it. 4y
rohit-sawant @erzascarletbookgasm Thanks a lot! 😊 4y
vivastory Two books that are similar, but a lot better 4y
Reggie Nice multitasking!!! Haha, @vivastory How funny because I liked We Eat Our Own, bailed on Experimental Film and loved Demon Theory. 4y

Virginia Woolf | Zena Alkayat
post image

This gorgeously illustrated biography follows Woolf‘s remarkable life and works. She was one of the founding member of the Bloomsbury Group.
Excerpt:”On Thursday evenings, Virginia‘s brother Thoby would invite his Cambridge friends to gather in the parlour to discuss art, politics, philosophy and their grand ideas. This was the start of the Bohemian ‘Bloomsbury Group‘ and Virginia delighted in her new freedom.”

Cinfhen Well played 🙌🏻 4y
vivastory This book sounds fantastic. 4y
vivastory @merelybookish have you seen this? 4y
merelybookish No, but thanks for the heads up! There is so much BY VW and then so much ABOUT her, and then there's all the Bloomsbury material (by & about.) It's quite overwhelming so for now I'm trying to keep focused on what VW wrote. Still, I spent time down a rabbit hole last night reading up on her mental illness. 😶 So it's hard not to read around her while reading her. 4y

Magic Prague | Michael Henry Heim, Angelo Maria Ripellino
post image

My fascination with the capital of Bohemia aka Prague began with Kafka. For years I was fascinated by Prague & the tagged book was a real eye opener. A nonfiction history, encompassing the political, artistic & cultural history of the city, not being familiar with Peter Ackroyd at the time I'd never read anything like it before. Prague remains one of the cities I'd most like to travel to.

Cinfhen Great post!! Prague is a gorgeous city!! But man, it‘s medieval!!! All those gargoyles. Definitely a city to immerse yourself in. 🖤 4y
BarbaraBB Great post! I love Prague too but man, soooo many tourists there you can hardly see the city. 😂 4y
BarbaraBB Did you receive the book I sent you? According to the t&t system it should have been delivered on Monday. Hope it did 💕 4y
vivastory @BarbaraBB I got a notice that I have a package at the office, but I haven't been able to make it over there yet. I'm definitely going to stop by tomorrow! 4y
BarbaraBB No hurry, I‘m happy to know it arrived safely! 4y

All Passion Spent | Vita Sackville-West
post image

Last year I read and loved Virginia Woolf's Orlando, which was inspired by Vita Sackville-West, which led me down a rabbit hole of Sackville-West's work, which led me to purchase this book. According to the blurb it is: "Irreverently funny and surprisingly moving...the story of a woman who discovers who she is just before it is too late."

These books show a particular lifestyle, perhaps not Bohemian, but the trends, who‘s who, and fashion of the Pirate era.

vivastory These sound wonderful 4y

A Room of One's Own | Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf is my pick for #booked2019 #newtoyouauthor 🙈 it‘s about time I guess!

saresmoore I hope you love her! But you might hate her... 4y
Kimberlone I have that same version of Dalloway but my copy is falling apart! 4y

emilyhaldi @BarbaraBB nah, just starting with one 😉 then I'll go from there! 4y
batsy These covers 😍😍 4y
Tanisha_A @batsy Seriously! 😍 4y
Tanisha_A @BarbaraBB Such a hard time, I agree! 4y
Cinfhen I think they would also work for #Booked2019 #publicDomain 4y
Megabooks I need to read her too! 4y
britt_brooke I read To the Lighthouse last year and could not handle her stream of consciousness. It works for me with some books, but really, really didn‘t with that one. I‘m reluctant to try any of her other books. I‘ll be curious to see what you think. Good luck!! 4y
Reviewsbylola Good luck. That‘s all I‘m gonna say. 4y
