sobbing yes thank you christmas came early.
so i have this book on norweigan grammar… a load of examples are to do with fascism and revolutions. it’s like it’s trying to tell me something…
hello friends. these are books by my friend jill, a very kind and talented up and coming queer writer who is currently in a spot of financial trouble. each book is an anthology of short pieces about relationships and they’re all available on amazon for $1.75.
yeah. $1.75. that is a fucking steal, especially since jill’s stories are fuckin BEAUTIFUL. each one skillfully details complicated dynamics in a short number of words, crafting characters that draw you in by the first lines; each piece focuses on humanity and emotions and the complexities therein.
and she doesn’t get ANY royalties from amazon if she doesn’t sell a certain number of books each month, so please, please consider buying her books, or signal boosting if you can’t afford it right now. if you do buy one, please leave a positive review (even just stars if you can’t figure out what to write), because it helps with exposure and stuff.
she could really use your support in any way you can give it—signal boosting, buying the books, leaving amazon reviews, skywriting ‘buy jills books’, etc—so!!! please help her out
Nia and I found this book in the library. There is no context, description, or listed author. Every page is a picture of Humphrey Bogart. The only words we could find were the title and the dedication.
A wildly successful Chinese space opera epic is coming to the US courtesy of a new translation in 2014. The Three Body trilogy by Liu Cixin has sold hundreds of thousands of copies in China, renewing interest in hard science fiction in the country.
"When asked about what the books bring to American audiences, Liu notes that they provide a different perspective on the world: ‘American readers might be particularly interested in the way the book engages with issues in Chinese history and contemporary Chinese society, and I think they will find the book’s non-US-centric view of twentieth-century history intriguing.’”
oh my god
that looks amazing
AAAAAA that looks amazing.
And out of curiosity, I wonder if I can find a place to get the originals and not the translations.
What I see is epic kissing, drinking, and a severed head.
I am judging this book by its cover.
And it seems like a pretty good read.
