Odd, she bleeds ink . . .

I'm a writer, a librarian, and an avowed bibliophile. I simply wish to share my love of all things literary.

I’ll get over it later and actually hunker down to work on the story to get it fixed, but for now I’m just so mad about this whole thing about Hal having to have a more feminine name, contrasted with her not acting ‘strong’ enough.

The male privilege just reeks, and sometimes I forget how awful it can be.

No, she does not need a more feminine name.  I, and my female protagonists named Henry, Toby, and George, tell you that he is wrong.

Library, library, books, library!

“They’re never just books.

They’re whole worlds bound in paper and ink and spines. They’re the friends who never left you behind, the ones who were always there when the rest of the world wasn’t, the ones who turned a rainy day into an adventure.

They’re the ones that didn’t care that you were a little overweight, that you had glasses or flat feet or had to use an inhaler at the thought of a mile run.

They’re the ones that didn’t laugh or make fun.

They’re the ones who encouraged you to think, to work, to create, that showed it was a worthy endeavor to put words to paper. They’re the ones who inspired, pushed you to make your own worlds, your own stories.

Like a symbol of scientific notation, stories are an immense force of the universe bound within the confines of something as small as a paperback.”

book-escapism:

Trying to remember a book you read ages ago and not knowing the title or author is so depressing. It’s like the book is forever lost to you.
