There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away
Nor any Coursers like a Page
Of prancing Poetry —
This Traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of Toll —
How frugal is the Chariot
That bears the Human soul.
went to the bookstore with some holiday time cash moneys
could not resist
omg Monk novels!!!
also i’ve never read Beowulf and i figured it was about time i did. this is the bilingual version… i can’t read old english but i love language and a bilingual edition of any book automatically gives me a giant nerdboner. you know i’m going to try to puzzle out the old english too. because that shit is cool.
sometimes when i don’t have an answer for something i just yell ARE THERE NO PRISONS?! ARE THERE NO WORKHOUSES?!
REBLOG IF YOU KNOW WHAT A BURRAHOBBIT IS
a question for people who’ve read The Hobbit
specifically ppl who read it A) a long time ago or B) at least long enough not to have seen stuff from the upcoming film before or while they were reading it…
which dwarves were your favorites?
(mine were Balin and Bombur, i might as well say. although i do love all of them dearly and cried my little eyes out when Thorin, Fili and Kili died.)
i really hate it when people say you shouldn’t use the computer or watch tv before going to bed and instead you should read a book because you need winding down time or you won’t sleep. ha ha good one do you know what happens if i start a book before bed?! i end up fucking finishing it that’s what
reading a book is like the worst way for me to wind down, are you kidding? christ
