I was supposed to get that one book, just one, but is apparently not available in any bookstores I went to. So here I ended up with these! #bookhaul #books #bookstagram

Are you a monster? Do you flip to the glossy pages in the middle of the book first, or do you wait, reading toward them? Time travel, or a countdown.

Do you live in or around/near Indianapolis? You might want to check out Indy Reads Books indyreadsbooks, an independent bookstore in downtown Indianapolis. The store directs money to the not-for-profit organization Indy Reads, which fights illiteracy within Indianapolis.

Currently reading Dirty Wars by Jeremy Scahill, and Mona Lisa Overdrive by William Gibson.

(I need to finish The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer, Iron Council by China Miėville, and The Flamethrowers by Rachel Kushner. I’m reading them, but I guess I define “currently” by what books I carry with me for the day. How do you define it?)

I visited an amazing, hidden bookstore today. The owner came up and offered me tea, and asked if I was looking for anything specific. When I told her I was searching for Julia Child’s books she pointed me to a 13th edition of her “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”. She and I talked food and she told me her personal stories of meeting Julia on multiple occasions. As I kept browsing she came back and gave me a 1st edition of the 2nd volume of Julia’s book. I’m so thankful to have found a gem like this. 

Oh man I want to go here.

I won a copy of World of Trouble by Ben H. Winters through a Goodreads giveaway, and received it the other day! Thank you to quirkbooks and Ben H. Winters. Can’t wait to see if this asteroid hits the planet or not.

"If you are going to try, go all the way. Otherwise don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives, jobs. And Maybe your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery, isolation. Isolation is the gift. All others are a test of your endurance. Of how much you really want to do it. And you’ll do it, despite rejection in the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods. And the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is."
Charles Bukowski (via saviours)
