1984 | George Orwell

Old books usually hide a history behind the story.
Take this 1st edition 1984. Is that blood on the pages? I like to think so. The page that it's on is especially ominous. "You won't be reading that propaganda, Winston"

Emilie Autumn is one of my favorite steampunk artists. A multi talented Musician, Author and Actor. Here is her book, The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls, sitting on her old touring wheelchair "Wheelie"

I haven't been sleeping well for the last couple weeks. And what else are you gonna do at 2:30 in the morning, besides shop for books online?
I blew my book budget on this first edition but I'll justify it as an investment. 😁 It's one of the better physical copies I've seen, and I've been hunting for this for years.

akckitty Nice find! 9mo
mjester @akckitty I know! I'd been looking for a perfect copy since 2002 😉 9mo

@TheReadingMermaid Here you go. Not as good as thumbing through the book yourself, but still...

TheReadingMermaid That is fabulous. I love the artwork in this edition 😍😍😍 my addition is beautiful but it has no illustrations in it. I wish that it did. 9mo

@TheReadingMermaid These are fun little Poe editions. You'd probably like them. What's your favorite Poe story? Mine is either The Black Cat or The Fall of the House of Usher.

TheReadingMermaid Oh I love those editions! Wish I could thumb through them. I'll tag you with a pic of mine.... 9mo

A couple years ago, I sent Ania Ahlborn a volume of Scary Stories with the original artwork. She sent me some treats in response. This is one of my most treasured books. Have a good weekend everyone. Stay Classy.

Some of my earliest and fondest memories of reading are from this show. Now I can't sleep and have the theme song stuck in my head.

Aloisi_tribe Have you listened to Levar Burton‘s podcast? It‘s like an adult version of Reading Rainbow. 9mo
dariazeoli Yes! LeVar Burton is a huge reason I‘m a bookworm 9mo

mjester @Aloisi_tribe I haven't heard the podcast but I'm excited just knowing it's out there. 😯 9mo
mjester @dariazeoli Me too! Happy Friday. 9mo
MStew "I can do anything ..its in a book so take a look reading rainbow..""?????? loved this show as a kid!!! 9mo
mjester @meghan2714 And just like that, I have the song in my head again. 😄 I don't mind though, that's a rocking song. I loved that show too. I remember skipping school so I could catch the book reviews. 🤫 They seemed more important somehow... 9mo
MStew @mjester the book reviews were the best lol I always checked them out at library after wacthing 9mo
mjester @meghan2714 Me too, such a trusted source. 😀 9mo

My Name is Mary Katherine Blackwood. I Am 18 years old, I live with my sister Constance. I've often thought that with any luck I could have been born a werewolf, because the two middle fingers on both hands are the same length, but I have had to be content with what I had. I dislike washing myself, dogs, and noise. I like my sister Constance and Richard Plantagenet, and Amanita phalloides, the death cap mushroom. Everyone else in my family is dead

BookNerd9906 Best opening line ever! 9mo
mjester I agree. Though I had to shorten a few sentences to keep it within Litsy quote field. Possibly my favorite book of all time. 9mo
mjester My O.C.D almost didn't allow me to post it without a period at the end. But I fought through for Shirley Jackson! 9mo

jenniferajanes @mjester Good call! I was pretty much done with social media, and then I found Litsy and decided to give it a try because it‘s full of fellow book lovers. I enjoy spending time here. Littens are some of the nicest, kindest, and most respectful people hanging out online. I‘m glad you joined us! 🥰 9mo
mjester @jenniferajanes Totally agree. And I've yet to see poor grammar! Which is worth hanging around for. 9mo
mjester @CoffeeNBooks Thank you. I'm happy to have joined. 9mo
jenniferajanes @mjester 😂 I hadn‘t thought about it, but you‘re right! 9mo
RaimeyGallant Nice quote. And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo put some together at the link in her bio. 9mo

BarbaraTheBibliophage I read the first book ages ago. Now that the series is out, I‘m going to pull the second and third off my shelves and give them a go! 9mo
mjester Me too. I read The Passage in 2010 or something. I couldn't remember the characters that well but the T.V series is pulling everything together. 9mo
BookwormAHN Welcome to Litsy 😺 9mo
mjester @BookwormAHN What a pawfect greeting 😹 9mo
mjester @BookNerd9906 When you look at the City of Mirrors cover does it look like there's always a reverse "R" somewhere in the title? Then upon further inspection you can't find it and everything looks normal. Maybe I've just been playing too much Tetris lately... 9mo
BookNerd9906 Only when I hold it up to the mirror. 😘 9mo
DebinHawaii Welcome to Litsy!! 🎉📚🎉Hope you are enjoying it here! 9mo
