Tumblr people, please read this:
flyingsoloflyingfree: aliceihavebeen: Whenever disaster strikes, tumblr has always been good about spreading the word and raising awareness.. but it seems like all is silent right now when it should be loud. People in Mississippi and Alabama are suffering from the worst tornado damage in history here. Nearly half a million people are without electricity and already the death toll has reached...
What kind of book are you?
thecanary: Reblog with a “chirp!” and we shall tell you… What book your blog would be, if it were a book, What your Canary spirit animal would be, and/or Perhaps even add your blog spirit Canary image to a collage we’ll be making. So chirp it loud! Chirp! …That’s it, right?
I am on a train
And going to get my tattoos this week. And yet, right now, I feel like I’m going to break down into tears. I know exactly why, but the one person I want to tell is the one person I can’t tell. So I’m stuck on this train feeling like this for another 5 hours. Woo.
fuckyeahreading!: The Benefits of Reading →
youmeandpikachu: Many of you think that reading is boring or unproductive and it is an innate human skill that has been taken for granted since time immemorial. What most of you don’t know is that many who developed reading as a habit have experienced many benefits from it and have…

Day 21 - Favourite book from your childhood
The Nancy Drew series by Carolyn Keene. I read all of them as a kid. Yes, not the Hardy Boys. I was male and I preferred Nancy Drew. So sue me.
Day 20 - Favourite romance book
Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan!!! …Yes, I am catching up my entire week I didn’t do these…
Day 19 - Favourite book turned into a movie
Probably V For Vendetta. Though is technically was a graphic novel and not a book, I still think it counts. Besides, most books that are made into movies SUCK.

Day 17 - Favourite quote from your favourite book
…Yes, I missed a day. So sue me. Ok, this is really hard because it requires picking TWO favourites. And I hate that.

Day 18 - A book that disappointed you
Eragon. I had heard really good things about it from people, and then I read it and was just… “WTF. Seriously?”. It struck me as a young teenage fan fic writer trying to mash together Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, and The Dragonriders of Pern. And not doing it too well. His mommy and daddy had no business publishing that book themselves. He’s a better writer now, but he...
Day 16 - Favourite female character
Elphaba from Wicked!!
Day 15 - Favourite male character
Hrmm… Either Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes or Ender from Ender’s Game and sequels. Ok ok, Kvothe and Bast from The Name of the Wind are pretty friggin great too.
