Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.
Steven King (via magiquotes)
I’ve found many already:
Pride and Prejudice’s Mr. Darcy;
Outlander’s Jamie Fraser;
Anne of Green Gables’ Gilbert Blythe;
Jane Eyre’s Mr. Rochester;
North and South’s Mr. Thornton (Although some argue he’s just Mr. Darcy in disguise)
Little Women’s Teddy
The Time Traveler’s Wife’s Henry DeTamble
Romantic junkies. get your read on.
This is Books Etc. It’s a really lovely second-hand book store in North Perth, on Fitzgerald street and it’s going under. This store and it’s lovely owner rely on the odd person who comes in and buys a box or two of books to get by. And it’s not going so well - he predicts he won’t last the year out.
So, if you like second-hand books at reasonable prices, crazy (really freakin’ nuts) store layouts and life lessons from a kindly old men who seem to have done everything and been everywhere, I honestly suggest going down and checking it out. You won’t regret it.
Even if you don’t buy anything just chatting to the owner might give you a bit of hope.
It sure helped me today.
I’ve been reading way too much “serious literature” lately. I need a good fantasy novel for the summer. Any recommendations along the lines of say Daughter of the Forest or Mists of Avalon? -Much appreciated
thanks everyone for all your reading suggestions. I’m really intriguesd because most of them I’ve never heard of and wouldn’t have even thought of them. Can’t wait to see which ones call for me to pick them up! You’re all wonderful and of course I have the best and most well read followers!
