I find Tolkien's and Lewis' writing extremely similar! Dunno why that came as such a big surprise

I've been having trouble reading lately because I was so tired of every book I picked up. And then I decided to read this and was pleseantly surprised. Also, shame on me for never reading any literature from my own country. 😂

I love when writers/musicians talk about the people and books that inspired them even though it's rarely something I'd read 😋

LaLecture I like that too! Sometimes it makes me want to read the books mentioned :). 4mo

"You're also finding out something as you read that will be vitally important for making your way in this world: the world doesn't have to be like this. Things can be different".

I'm reading one chapter a day. Gaiman's words and thoughts will resonate with anyone who has a passion for books.

I've been looking for this poem for ages!!! I remembered the title but not the name of the author which made it impossible to find! Luckily, the author's website was lost somewhere in my browser's bookmarks folder. This poem is "Parallel Universes" by Kate Edwards. I couldn't fit the whole poem in the photo but you can read it here:

gradcat Thanks for this. I really enjoyed reading it, and now I want to know more about the poet. ❤️ 5mo

It was a placing of his destiny in another's hands, a shifting of the responsibilities of existence. This in itself was compensation, for it is always easier to lean upon another than to stand alone.

Half of this book is basically a dictionary 😂 There are over 200 hundred definitions counting all of the footnotes and honestly I find myself distracted by finding all those little numbers while trying to finish a sentence. 😥

PerksOfBeingABookworm I hate excessive use of footnotes. At what point do you stop to read them? Mid sentence? End of sentence? End of paragraph? I‘ve used footnotes in papers before, but I kind of hate reading them. 6mo

I'm revisiting an old childhood favorite while I wait for my car to get ready. I bought and read this book as a kid because it had a wolf on the cover. 😂
According to the blurb on the back of the book, London committed himself to writing a 1000 words a day for 16 years!!

ChristySevern @pilardib Book before movie in this case is a really good idea. The first season holds pretty true to the book, the 2nd is more speculative but still really great. Super intense show! But I think it's worth the watch 😊 6mo

Great writing and beautifully told. The way the author divided the story in different parts was very clever. Too bad I didn't like the main character and his friends. All of their moments together were just boring and forgetful.

It's not a big thing, but I guess it's true--big things are often just small things that are noticed.

Nothing, however, exits my mouth. How well do we really let ourselves know each other?

I'm so glad Rick Riordan finally shared his experience (and frustration!!) with the adaptation of the series. I think this applies to too many book adaptations and it seems that the studios will never learn.

Prime numbers are what is left when you have taken all the patterns away. I think prime numbers are like life. They are very logical but you could never work out the rules, even if you spent all your time thinking about them.

The review on the back of the book pretty much sums it up 😆 If you hate scifi as much as I do, then this book is for you 😊

quote
pilardib

Those who study the complex interplay of cause and effect in the history of the Universe say that this sort of thing is going on all the time, but that we are powerless to prevent it.
"It's just life" they say.
